Gig Harbor Welcome

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013



Studio Intro

Gig Harbor is located on Gig Harbor Bay in Puget Sound, across the Narrows Bridge from Tacoma. The harbor remains a working waterfront, but tourism and recreational boating, including human-powered vessels, are growing in Gig Harbor. With increasing competition from new developments apart from the historic downtown, Gig Harbor is seeking to encourage economic growth and development while maintaining its identity, respecting its heritage and anticipating its future.
