Port Angeles Vacations

Northern Washington’s Seaside Jewel

Situated in Port Angeles, WA — a lovely city hugging the stunning seaside of the Strait of Juan de Fuca — Olympic Lodge by Ayres offers breathtaking surroundings, unparalleled service, exceptional amenities, and easy access to all the best of the area.

The Best of Port Angeles


The Port Angeles area truly celebrates the beauty of unspoiled green space. Our 45 city parks offer everything from playgrounds to sports fields, nature preserves to lakes and ponds. Olympic National Park — the northwest’s only World Heritage Site — is also nearby, and offers near-endless opportunities for hiking, biking and exploration. The 130-mile Olympic Discovery Trail is perhaps the most popular, with vast stretches of spectacular sightseeing.


Want to get out and enjoy the water? You’re in the perfect place. Our proximity to the Strait of San de Fuca affords access to fantastic activities like paddleboarding, kayaking, surfing, and much more. The area’s many pleasure cruises, fishing charters and sightseeing tours are also a great way to enjoy a fun day on the water. While here, you can even hop on a ferry to Victoria, BC, and explore Canada’s Vancouver Island! 

Beaches and Coastline

As a seaside city, Port Angeles can boast many incredible beaches. Our coastal landscape can be explored on foot, by car, or on a bicycle — there’s no wrong way to take it all in. With more than 70 miles of coastline — some developed, but much still rugged and wild — you’ll be able to enjoy a wide variety of experiences as you explore. So whether you’re more likely to bring a picnic or a backpack, you’re certain to enjoy an incredible day’s adventures.

Winter Fun

Port Angeles doesn’t slow down when the mercury dips. The abundant natural beauty of the area offers plenty of opportunities for snowshoeing, snowmobile exploration, skiing (both downhill and cross-country) and much more. Even better, you can enjoy the region’s snow on your own terms — the mountains get plenty of snowfall, but the downtown area rarely sees much accumulation — so you can explore without worry.
