Further south, the city of Tacoma offers insight into pioneer history. Learn about the lives of traders in Fort Nisqually and find out about naval traditions in the Working Waterfront Maritime Museum.
Ride boats between the islands, looking out from the decks of the ferry for whales as you skim over the waves. Trendy Vashon Island combines scenic beaches and cultural attractions such as a galleries and theaters. Head to Bainbridge Island to visit vineyards and picturesque harbor towns.
Hike through the parks of the Kitsap peninsula. West Port Madison Nature Preserve and Penrose Point State Park are just two of the many places to find walking trails and wildlife.
