And it doesn't get much prettier than Port Orchard on a sunny day and yes there are sunny days in Washington. Port Orchard around 111000 people and the town is located right on the Puget Sound. Thirteen miles west of Seattle with -- connecting the -- city. One of the things I love about Port Orchard Washington it's just coming down to the waterfront. That's because the waterfront is almost picture perfect almost everywhere you look it's like up close by so it's no wonder this is a favorite place for locals to hang out. I actually come down and -- the waterfront to clear my head. And the -- there it is amazing in the Puget Sound area is just smells great looks great Port Orchard.

You'll also find -- -- restaurants and my favorite sugar stopped an old fashioned candy store with more than four dozen kinds of saltwater taffy. And movie buffs will love the pregnant wife theater with the Yankees tickets are just like. Look downfield theater -- -- old movies playing -- partly -- better I love it.

From my third favorite small Washington town you're going to have to leave the waterfront and drive over the cascade mountain range to the town of -- and work.
