When most of us think of island living near Tacoma we imagine some of the more remote islands that are accessible only by Ferry- such as Anderson Island or Vashon Island. Fox Island is only 30 minutes from Downtown Tacoma and 20 minutes from Gig Harbor’s Uptown- most importantly you can get there by driving over a bridge!
Fox Island feels much more removed and rural that it truly is. There are rural properties on acreage in the center of the island and incredible waterfront homes located all around the island. Fox Island has a post office, a small grocery store (with a secret bar in the back!), and loads of public fishing and beaches. The lifestyle here is pretty special.
