Gig Harbor is arguably Washington state’s prettiest harbor town. As the waves lap gently against the shore, the boats in the harbor bob up and down like wine corks, and the reflection of the sun glistens in the azure waters. The scenes here are truly breathtaking.
Hiking and enjoying the local scenery is one of the best things to do in Gig Harbor. Work those quads and embark on the Harborview Drive trail that leads you along a 1.5-mile route past the town’s most important monuments and historical sites. Starting at Old Ferry Landing Park, visit the Fisherman’s Memorial and the Harbor History Museum along your way. Try the much loved local recipe clam chowder at one of the waterfront restaurants, and then head to the docks to see the local sea life through Harbor Wildwatch’s interactive touch tanks.
