Fun Things To Do While Staying at the Bishop

Whether you are in town for a day, a weekend, or a week, Port Townsend is a terrific place to visit. As one of America’s two National Historic Victorian Seaports, Port Townsend has many maritime pursuits to explore, and since we’re right on the doorstep of the Olympic National Park, outdoor activities are almost endless. History buffs, arts mavens, and shopping aficionados all find “PT” irresistible – and the staff at The Bishop Victorian are happy to help you plan your visit. Here are a few of our favorite things to do by interest:
