What the Neighbors are Saying

It's one thing to form an opinion based on your first impressions of a neighborhood, but it's another to hear from the people who call it home.

Awesome place to raise a family! Great schools, small town feel but lots of shopping and restaurants (more on the way!), beautiful beaches, state parks, and lots of options for living (acreage, waterfront, to urban style)!


Although its not nearly as much of a small town these days, Gig Harbor is still appreciated for its beautiful scenery, and larger, wooded parcels of land. In recent years many restaurants have opened and improvements have been made to the public spaces and parks.
