Welcome to


A Victorian Port frozen in time...

Townsend Harbor began in the heyday of the gold rush and her history is one of booming business and elegant secrets. Take a tour of our Painted Ladies and Victorian architecture and stay a while in one of our historic Bed & Breakfasts or hotels. We have all the luxuries of the city, including museums, galleries, spas, apparel and fine dining. Some of the most interesting shops can be found on Water Street, like Nevermore Bookstore and Bazaar Girls. From chic to unique, you'll find something to love!
