The Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to represent the residents and business community of Port Angeles located on The Olympic Peninsula. The community is the gateway to Olympic National Park, and home to Coho Ferry, our connection to Victoria BC.
A temperate climate, rural lifestyle, fabulous recreation, a diverse business community, quality schools and college along with first class health care facilities allow Port Angeles to attract families and vacationers. These same attributes help make Port Angeles a top retirement destination.
Port Angeles has been recently named in the Top 100 Best Small Towns by Livibiity.com
"Home to Peninsula College, Port Angeles also has a high-achieving local school district. The city connects to the Olympic Discovery Trail that traverses 130 miles of lowlands bordered by the Olympic Mountain Range and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Other recreational opportunities for residents include mountains, rivers, lakes and forestland. An 80-bed Olympic Medical Center serves residents and anchors health care in Port Angeles, while city officials are redeveloping the downtown district."
A more detailed description of Port Angeles was included in their 2014 Top 10 Best Small Towns:
"A stroll along City Pier in downtown Port Angeles, Wash., provides fantastic views of this best small town's major attractions. To the north is the Strait of Juan de Fuca, where massive ships float by carrying lumber and cargo while smaller vessels bring fresh-caught crabs to the docks and kayakers paddle around a sandy beach.
Looking south offers a glimpse of the snowcapped mountains in Olympic National Park, a pristine playground for hikers, bikers and skiers. It's easy to see that residents of this small town have plenty of choices when it comes to having fun and getting exercise.
