Port Angeles City Pier

The Port Angeles City Pier is in downtown Port Angeles, at the end of Lincoln Street. It's adjacent to the bustling Port Angeles City Wharf with restaurants and shops.

Visitors can walk to the the end of the Port Angeles City Pier, and climb four flights of stairs up a tower to experience incredible 360 degree views of the Olympic Mountains to the south, and Victoria BC to the north.

The entrance to the Port Angeles City Pier has an open grassed area with tables and benches, overlooking sandy Hollywood Beach. It's also a popular spot for live music and concerts in summer.

There's some brightly colored murals at the entrance to the pier, depicting the earliest pioneering days in Port Angeles. The Feiro Marine Line Center is just beyond these murals, with plenty of fun touch-tanks for kids.
