    Just the perfect surprise stop. We each had something different. A flight of gin, flight of bourbon and specialty cocktail. Chilled atmosphere. Great knowledge and super friendly service!

    Great local paved trail. I have explored both on foot and by bike and it is a welcome traffic free way of dissecting Gig Harbor on a dedicated well marked, well laid out trail.

    The hills will surprise a little. I have enjoyed walking them but confess I had to climb off my bike a couple of times as the gradient was too much. The trail is ridden by people of all ages and they seem to manage the hills fine. The gradient is undulating rather than long drawn out climbs.

    In the summer I love to take my grandkids up to park. They can swing or play on a multitude or structures.

    Good, free museum to learn about the Gig Harbor area including the indigenous people, European settlers, and the Narrows Bridge. They even have a one room school house. We spent about 1.5 hours here and learned a lot about the area. There are a few interactive displays for the kids to explore and a small gift shop. The area was fun to walk around.

    Love this park, always something going on here! We really enjoy the Tuesday night summer concert series. It is well maintained, love the Skansie net shed in the park, very historic. Bring a picnic and enjoy the views!

    Stopped here on our way to Seattle on the recommendation of a friend and it was a GREAT choice. We are "those parents" who take our kids to breweries rather than miss out on trying a new-to-us tap room. The Hazy IPA was great, it was a beautiful view on a beautiful day, they lit a fire pit for us to sit around, there was root beer and apple juice for our dudes (13 and 11). We bought a ton of merch to bring back with us to Texas.

    I love this beach. You need the Discovery Pass or Day Parking to park in the lot, then walk past the bathrooms down the forested trail to the beach. There are many sand dollar, so be careful where you walk.

    Many years ago, my husband and I began visiting the Chalet for the restorative experience and tranquil garden setting. We were primarily shopping for modern Scandinavian tableware (Iittala plates, glasses, vases etc.). Over the last 8 years we have started purchasing more and more clothing items: St. James of France and Oleana of Norway. Our wardrobes are now made up of these two clothing lines - almost exclusively. It is so refreshing to be able to purchase quality clothing that is meant to be worn over and over again and that isn't styled in such a way as to be out-moded in a year. I'm still wearing sweaters I purchased 5 or 6 years ago. It is extremely difficult to find quality clothing at any price. If you're looking for a relaxing shopping experience and clothing you'll wear year after year, stop by and see Laura.

    Beautiful off leash fenced in dog park within the forest. Large main area for play and trails through the woods for walking. My dog loved exploring the trails.

    This is a small out of the way park operated by Peninsula Metro Parks. There is a small parking area and port-a-potty. Most of the park is a sloping grass field with a trail down to the beach. It is possible to use this beach for dive access and swimming. The beach has a great view of southern Vachon Island, Commencement Bay, Point Defiance and Mt Rainier. This is a small lightly used park best suited for quiet time in nature. Deer, birds and other animals frequent the park.

    We love this small park, it's great to visit in the fall to look for salmon in the stream. The beautiful wood sculpture by the local artists is a wonderful centerpiece.

    We had a groupon to visit and taste ten different types of beer that they brew. The place filled up quickly with plenty of visitors. Our group spent nearly 90 minutes in the brewery. Since there was no kitchen obviously they did not sell any food.
    Overall we had a good time.

    This park is bounded on three sides by roads, making it quite a little oasis for people/car watching. You can walk along Donkey Creek quite a ways, which is an added bonus.

    I live a block away from this small forest. It's one of my favorite places to walk through. You are truly transported quickly into a lush, beautiful forest while walking on sawdust. It's peaceful and quiet and you can hear a woodpecker hard at work. There are benches placed throughout so that you can sit in solace and take advantage of this little oasis. It's small but mighty! I usually walk part of the Cushman Trail which goes right by this forest, then I walk through the forest, down to the main rain with tremendous water views of Puget Sound and then over to the quaint and charming town of Gig Harbor and around the Harbor, enjoying the majestic views of Mount Rainier, boats, boutique shops, restaurants and parks along the way. It's wonderful!

    Also known as "Dead Mans Island", this is a great destination via boat or kayak. There are large mooring buoys off the island in deep water. Rafting for the weekend is a great way to visit the area. If you want to Kayak, a great shortcut is launch at Raft Island private launch. You must drive back off the island, there's a little public parking area at the end of the street, which you take to get to Raft Island. Parking in the lot is by Raft Island permit only.
