Gig Harbor Hotels

This picturesque waterfront village has plenty of action hiding beneath the surface. You'll want to stay that extra day.

On first glance, Gig Harbor is a sleepy waterfront village with a relaxed atmosphere and a slow pace of life. Looks can be deceiving.

For families, Ocean 5 is an entertainment complex with 10-pin bowling alley, duckpin bowling alley, a two-story laser tag arena, arcade games and a farm-to-table restaurant on site. 

For grown-ups, the most decorated craft distillery in the country - Heritage Distilling Company - is based here, offering tours and tastings from their distillery, and a huge selection of spirits to shop at their waterfront tasting room.

For everyone, the waterfront is filled with wonderful restaurants, a rich history (best seen in the Harbor History Museum), off-beat shops, kayak and SUP rentals, and even the only Venetian gondola in the Pacific Northwest.

That is to say that there's clearly enough to warrant an extended weekend in Gig Harbor. Here's where you can make it happen:
