Port Angeles

Annual average total precipitation: 25 inches

Port Angeles, about two and a half hours north of Seattle on the Olympic Peninsula, is situated in the rain shadow and is the headquarters of Olympic National Park. The weather is usually mild except for occasional Arctic cold fronts that sweep across the Strait of Juan de Fuca in the winter months.

Port Angeles, birthplace of football hall of famer John Elway, has a newly renovated waterfront worth checking out this summer.
