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.
