Things to do

Explore Poulsbo's scenic waterfront

One of Poulsbo's most charming spots is the waterfront area, a bustling space where panoramic views from Liberty Bay Waterfront Park are just the beginning. Museums and art galleries are all easy to come by in this area, although many travelers find themselves happy enough to settle back in a bayside restaurant and watch the world go by. There's plenty of spots where you can rent a kayak and head off to find a perfect spot on the water, while those who prefer someone else to do the legwork can just as easily arrange a charter cruise to the Puget Sound.


Get your Viking on in Poulsbo

Norwegians settled in Poulsbo in the late 1800s, and to this day the city proudly remembers its roots, not least at its colorful Viking Fest. Held over 3 days each May, the festival counts a Lutefisk eating contest, costumed locals, and a lively parade among its highlights. Missed the festival? A trip to the Martinson Cabin Museum offers a peek into early Poulsbo life. Plus, you can enjoy a guided walking tour of downtown with a member of the Poulsbo Historical Society (call to book), stopping along the way for an obligatory selfie with the city's 12-foot Norseman Statue.


Sunny days in Poulsbo

While Viking Fest is enough to tempt any traveler to book their Poulsbo vacation rental in May, a trip over the summer months of July and August will serve up some seriously sunny days – perfect for kicking back at American Legion and Kitsap Memorial State Parks. You'll find rentals a little pricier over the summer, though, so if getting a great deal is on your wish list, hanging fire until September or October can be a wise move. While there will likely be a bit of drizzle, fewer crowds, lower rates, and still-nice temperatures make early fall something of a sweet spot.
