Gig Harbor is a charming city full of peace and solitude. Located near Puget Sound with scenic views of nearby Mt. Rainer, 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. Only 45 miles to Seattle’s famous Pike Place market, Seattle’s epicenter of fresh produce, specialty foods and year-round farmer markets. We are an outdoor lover’s dream as water, mountains, and evergreen forests surround us.
