My husband and I decided to visit a part of Washington that we had never been before. As we were driving up the coast of Hood Canal we stumbled upon the darling town of Port Gamble.
The town was established in 1853 and they have preserved the homes beautifully. Everything was decorated for Christmas and the blue skies peaked in and out as we visited some of the shops down N. Rainier Avenue.
If you are planning a wedding this is the perfect location for you to check out as well. As we drove into the town we passed St. Paul’s Church while a bride and groom were just retreating from the church. For additional information visit the Port Gamble Wedding website.
We then stopped in at the General Store and Museum for a hot cup of coffee. It was completely decorated for the holidays while Christmas music played in the background.
Speaking about the holidays you don’t want to miss Port Gamble’s Country Christmas on the weekend of December 8th and 9th. There will be hay rides, tree lighting, fireworks, Santa’s Workshop and of course shopping at the local shops.
Last but not least is the Walker-Ames House. Supposedly there has been reported paranormal activity occurring at the house and in other locations around town. Coincidentally the town was the setting for the movie, Zombies of Mass Destruction!
We had a lovely day and plan to return to this quaint town very soon! Do you have a special town in your area? If you do please share them with us in the comment section below.
