Gig Harbor is a place with captivating beauty, everywhere you look, there are scenes of uncommon splendor, watercraft of all shapes and sizes, historic homes and businesses, open views across the harbor, and those amazing moments when Rainier towers in the distance.
Gig Harbor is a place deeply connected. A stroll through town will bring you past historic net sheds, a stunning museum, and the area’s largest collection of independent businesses and restaurants. People gather here for festivals, concerts, gallery strolls, or family nights out. We are a place where our past inspires our future, knowing we can preserve what is great about this place while continuing to make our town, and all that it means to us, even better.
Gig Harbor is one of several cities and towns that claim to be “the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula”. It is located on Gig Harbor Bay in Puget Sound across the Narrows Bridge from Tacoma. Due to its close access to several state and city parks, and historic waterfront that includes boutiques and fine dining, it has become a popular tourist destination.
