"GIG HARBOR" Gig Harbor by TedRico

Gig Harbor Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 9 photos


Shortly after crossing the famous Narrows Bridge from Tacoma there are information signs to access Gig Harbor. The first exit takes you straight way into Gig Harbor and business section. As you descend the steep hill, take in the wonderful scenic views. I recommend that slow speed while entering Gig Harbor is essential because the possibility of missing the architecture. And besides that the local police are very touchy about speeding through their district!
The second exit takes you through the residential area, and the descent is more gradual than the first entry. There are Victorian homes here, and one can easily shoot an entire roll of film here if so inclined.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A nice place to make a rest stop
  • Cons:Obey the posted speed limits!
  • In a nutshell:The view while entering is breathtaking!
