Whenever you visit, you will find a wide range of things to do — from outdoor recreation to wine tastings in small towns and in historic vineyards. You'll also find a variety of lodging choices — from beachfront suites to charming B&Bs and Airbnbs in out-of-the-way and scenic locations. Getting to the Kitsap Peninsula is gorgeous! From Seattle or Edmonds, hop aboard one of the famous Washington State Ferries or travel across the impressive Tacoma Narrows Bridge, which is a short distance from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
