HotelTonight – Hotel in Gig Harbor Washington Today
Gig Harbor is a picturesque maritime city that claims to be the "gateway to the Olympic Peninsula." This idyllic city is easily accessible by major cities in Washington like Seattle and Tacoma, which is one of the reasons why it's such a popular weekend destination. It offers a sense of peace and calm that you can't find in the city, and it's regularly ranked as one of the best small towns in the state of Washington. Gig Harbor provides the perfect getaway for unwinding and enjoying the beautiful outdoors, and I only wish I had had more time to further explore Gig Harbor during my recent trip to the Pacific Northwest. After a full workweek in Seattle, I ventured out to Gig Harbor to relax and soak in the natural beauty of the bay, and I fell in love with Gig Harbor immediately. To book my last-minute hotel in Gig Harbor, I simply relied on my HotelTonight app, which helped me find a lovely hotel near downtown Gig Harbor in minutes.
Without a doubt, the showstopper of Gig Harbor is its waterfront. It's difficult to put into words just how picturesque the quaint marina and stunning bay of Gig Harbor really are, and I spent hours just walking along the waterfront of Gig Harbor during my stay. I also decided to see Gig Harbor from the water one day, so I ventured out onto the bay on a boat, and it provided me with stunning views of the town and the surrounding scenery of the peninsula.
Downtown Gig Harbor is the place to be when you're hungry. There are over 20 great restaurants in this idyllic little downtown, so you'll always be able to find something that sounds good to you. Since Gig Harbor is located on a bay, I made sure to eat a lot of fresh seafood while in town, and there's definitely no shortage of great seafood in the area.
Gig Harbor is home to a number of great parks, which is why locals and visitors alike are able to spend so much time outdoors. There are great parks for picnicking, hiking, biking, enjoying beautiful marina views and even for BMX riding. I visited many parks during my stay in Gig Harbor, and some of my favorites were the Old Ferry Landing, Grand View Forest Park and the Adam Tallman Park. If you want to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors, you'll find it very easy in Gig Harbor.
