Overview of Gig Harbor

Located in southern Puget Sound, Gig Harbor is surrounded by one of the most beautiful landscapes in the United States. Known as Washington’s Maritime Village, Smithsonian Magazine named Gig Harbor as one of the Top Five Small Towns for culture, charm and heritage. Local residents live a high quality of life on the waterfront, secluded from the bigger cities on the Washington mainland. Gig Harbor is a unique small town with approximately 7,000 residents who enjoy a laidback lifestyle traditionally associated with the Western states. Look for Gig Harbor apartments for rent, and find the crown jewel in Puget Sound.

Living in Gig Harbor, WA

European settlers were attracted to the sheltered harbor and abundant natural resources found in Gig Harbor and moved into the area in the late 1800s. Croatians and Scandinavians were among the first, launching a fishing industry, and establishing farms and small businesses on the Washington peninsula. Boat building and family commercial fishing operations dominated the waterfront and the local economy through the 20th century, using ferries and small steam boats to transport passengers and goods with the mainland. The isolation of traveling solely by water caused Gig Harbor to develop slowly until the Narrows Bridge was built in 1950, connecting the peninsula with the city of Tacoma.

Today, a large part of the Tacoma population is made up of retirees, commuters and vacation dwellers, keeping apartments in Gig Harbor in high demand. The city council works very hard to preserve the Historic District and Gig Harbor’s unique heritage, yet commercial and residential development has led to new neighborhoods, recreational and tourist amenities in town. The waterfront area remains protected, and with it, the town’s exceptional beauty is also preserved.
