Port Angeles is a city in and the county seat of Clallam County, Washington, United States. The population was 18,397 at the 2000 census, making it the largest city on the Olympic Peninsula. The area's harbor was dubbed Puerto de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles (Port of Our Lady of the Angels) by Spanish explorer Francisco de Eliza in 1791, but by the mid-1800s the name had been shortened and partially anglicized to its current form.

Port Angeles is home to Peninsula College and is the birthplace of football hall of famer John Elway. The city is served by William R. Fairchild International Airport, and ferry service is provided across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada on the M/V Coho or Victoria Express. Abraham Lincoln designated Port Angeles to be the second or alternative capitol of the United States on June 19, 1863.

Port Angeles is also a popular tourist spot after it had been mentioned in the best selling Twilight saga books. It is approximately seventy-five minutes East of Forks, where the Twilight books are based. Bella & Edward's first date take place at a restaurant called Bella Italia, which is located in downtown Port Angeles. Also, the movie theatre where the characters in the books go to watch movies is located in downtown Port Angeles as well. Across the street from Bella Italia and the movie theatre is Dazzled By Twilight, a gift shop in honor of the books and blockbuster hit.
