Gig Harbor is all about the water and the woods. The historic downtown area serves as a focal point, with an active marina and an eclectic mix of locally owned galleries, shops and restaurants. Gig Harbor's public school system is well regarded, and annual events like the Maritime Gig Festival and the Street Scramble reflect a strong sense of community. Uptown Gig Harbor and Borgen Blvd offer more modern amenities, including a multiplex cinema and large scale retail outlets, but one of Gig Harbor's greatest assets is its natural beauty. Water front properties take full advantage of the million dollar views, while other homes enjoy the privacy afforded by rolling hills and old growth primeval forests. Public amenities like the Cushman Trail and Kopachuk State Park provide ample opportunities to explore the great outdoors.
