Port Angeles (1 hour by ferry + 2 hours by car from Seattle)

Port Angeles ocean view

Seattle stands on the Puget Sound, there are quite a lot of islands, a lot of ferries between them. All this joy from the Pacific coast of the Olympic Peninsula, with coastal mountains. Thanks to them, wind and characteristics, temperatures change outside of Seattle and the surrounding counties (and the rain has nowhere to go, so it happens that they get stuck here for a long time).
