Destination guide

The gateway to the Olympic Peninsula

On the shores of Puget Sound, the picturesque port of Gig Harbor offers up all the charm you can imagine when you think of the quintessential Pacific Northwest fishing port. Once a major commercial shipbuilding center, today the town serves more as a residential suburban community and popular vacation destination, while still preserving its commercial fishing heritage. Nestled between city life and wilderness, a Gig Harbor vacation rental is an ideal base for exploring the local beaches and marine life, as well as the lush rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula (just don't forget your poncho).

Things to do

From waterfront charm to water-soaked forests

The historic Gig Harbor waterfront is chock-full of boutiques and restaurants to charm even the most jaded visitor. Nearby you'll find countless state and city parks where you can stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air. If you're up for venturing a bit further afield, the stunning rainforests of Olympic National Forest are about an hour away. The young and young-at-heart will enjoy a visit to the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. If you're more into engineering than animals, you'll love the views of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge from Tacoma Narrow Park.


Coastal small-town life at its finest

The quaint harborfront is the heart of local life, hosting everything from farmers markets to outdoor concerts in the warmer (and drier) months. Take a dip or work on your tan at one of the many beaches that line Puget Sound. For those who prefer to be on the water, there are boating activities galore, and you'll quickly find yourself among wildlife at the preserved marine sanctuaries of the nearby islands. Don't worry If your sea legs aren't up to snuff -- the surrounding forests have more than enough hiking and biking trails to go around.


You can stand under my umbrella

The Pacific Northwest is synonymous with rain, and Gig Harbor won't disappoint if you're a fan of the wet stuff. With rainfalls above the national average, you'll want to pack an umbrella if you book a Gig Harbor vacation rental in the wetter months from October through April. You'll only occasionally see snow, as even in the coldest months of December to February the temperatures rarely drop below freezing. The period from May to September is moderate and dry, with temperatures typically peaking in the 70s during the warmest months of June to August (you might still want a light sweater at night).

Natural features

A watery wonderland of rainforests and wildlife

From seafarers to land lovers, a Gig Harbor vacation rental has something for everyone. Nestled on a bay of the same name, the town offers premium access to the beaches and marine wildlife sanctuaries of Puget Sound. For a close encounter with a different kind of wildlife, explore the trails of the surrounding forests, hills, and parks. If you really need to disconnect, you're in luck -- the lush rainforests of Olympic National Forest offer a truly unique change of scenery. Just bring a raincoat because you can't dodge all the drips.
