In 1890, Port Orchard was incorporated as Kitsap County's first city. Today it a busy waterfront community and popular tourist destination for business and leisure travelers. Bay Street, located a short block from the waterfront park, marina and foot ferry, is lined with antique and gift shops, bakery, cafes, pubs and attractions. During summer there are several free events including family concerts and festivals. Port Orchard is also home to the internationally known, Debbie MaComber, author of Cedar Cove, the popular series appearing on the Hallmark Channel.
Port Orchard's charming downtown waterfront features antique shops, dining with local brews & bites, walking paths, a playground and community park for family friendly activities. Further on down the waterfront you'll find excellent dining options. If you're into micro-brews be sure to stop by Moon Dogs, Too and the popular Slaughter County Brewery & Pub.
