About Port Angeles

Port Angeles lies at the feet of the green, forested Olympic Mountains, on the shoreline of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Olympic National Park extends into the city limits along Hurricane Ridge Road and covers hundreds of thousands of acres in the mountains to the south. With 18,397 people living in its limits, it is the major seaport of the Olympic Peninsula.

On June 19, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln ordered the establishment of a lighthouse and military reserve, which brought about the settlement of Port Angeles.

A series of bluffs overlook the harbor, broken by canyons cut by mountain streams. The streets of the city form a grid on the bluffs, with the downtown area below on the shoreline. The ground slopes gradually up to the mountains where streets wander through the forests and the ritzy neighborhoods lie largely out of sight among the trees.

U. S. Highway 101 passes east and west through Port Angeles, following the one-way streets First and Front Street, then turning south onto Lincoln.
