Gig Harbor Travel Guide

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.

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.
