True, the hiking is awesome...trails thread over hills, through groves of evergreen and run parallel to the sparkling shoreline. But it’s when you trade in land for water that things get really interesting. Imagine celebrating the end of another day with a sunset kayak out into the bay or commemorating the weekend with an afternoon boat ride around Puget Sound. Yes, that is life in the Harbor.
The vibe in Gig Harbor is definitely maritime but mixed in with a healthy dose of chic. Galleries and boutiques abound for those who love to balance the local art scene with some good old-fashioned book rummaging. And for those who enjoy capping off a shopping run with a little rendezvous with a half-dozen oysters and a glass of Malbec, well, you’re in luck too.
