Gig Harbor

Gig Harbor is a charming maritime village full of peace and solitude. Located near Puget Sound with scenic views of Mount Rainier, this picturesque community has a “getaway” feeling while still being close to everything. Culture and outdoor recreation unite on the harbor where maritime heritage thrives. 

Take in the culture at locally-owned hotels, waterfront taverns or wine bars. Experience the history of Gig Harbor along the waterfront dotted with galleries and boutiques, the Harbor History Museum, Waterfront History Walk and Narrows Park. From kayak to boat tours, harbor towns are all about water recreation. No matter the weather, adventure and beautiful scenery await you.
