The Most Beautiful Villages and Towns of the Pacific Northwest

A tour in words and photographs of the picturesque small towns of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia― their architectural treasures, charming inns, quaint main streets, and magnificent scenery.


The Most Beautiful Villages and Towns of the Pacific Northwest wends its way from nineteenth-century seaports like Port Townsend, Washington, to twenty-first-century ski resorts such as Whistler, British Columbia; from coastal getaways like Cannon Beach, Oregon, to Old West-style main streets in Joseph at the eastern border of that state. And it brings to life the stories of those who made epic journeys across the continent, trudging along the Oregon Trail or building the Canadian Pacific Railway in pursuit of the good life in this corner of North America.
