Gig Harbor, WAGig Harbor, the southern gateway to the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas, lies just across the dramatic Tacoma Narrows Bridge from Tacoma.
This tucked-away town sits on a scenic inlet framing a postcard-perfect view of Mount Rainier.
Gig Harbor's strong Scandinavian and Croatian heritage has always influenced its nautical lifestyle and fishing-village character.
Today specialty shops, creative boutiques, art galleries and waterfront restaurants add to its appeal and make it a wonderful get-away.
Gig Harbor Visitor & Volunteer Information Center is located at 3125 Judson ST - 253.857.4842 or 888.843.9444.
