A GREAT time to visit! Bridge closure 6 wks max
, there are BIG financial incentives built into the contract to finish early. It will be a wonderful time to visit the Olympic Peninsula in Washington as many will stay away, but if you approach it by driving up scenic 101 along the Hood Canal you can enjoy many camping options, National Park beaches, victorian Port Townsend, the Olympic Mountains. Both the Irrigation Festival in Sequim and the Rhody Festival in Port Townsend take place in May during the bridge closure.
If you decide to come the Keystone/Port Townsend Ferry mid week travel is advised and definitely make a reservation, no charge to do so or penalty if you cancel.
Come enjoy our bit of paradise!
