Living in Kitsap Peninsula

Living in Kitsap Peninsula


Mountains, forests, seashore, and a 900-foot-deep barrier between us and urban sprawl. We call it the Kitsap Difference. Those of us who live and work in Kitsap County enjoy affordable housing, excellent schools (including a first-rate community college) and unparalleled recreational opportunities in our own backyard. The glories of big city Seattle are but a short ferry ride - or drive - away.

The Kitsap Peninsula lies between the snow-capped Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges and is surrounded by waters of Puget Sound and the Hood Canal. With more than 200 miles of scenic shoreline, Kitsap County claims the distinction of having more saltwater shoreline than any other U.S. county.

The Kitsap Peninsula is truly a magical place providing residents and visitors with an array of activities including:

  • Nature trails for bike riding
  • Miles of mesmerizing shorelines for kayaking
  • Scenic mountains for hiking
  • Shops filled with local art
  • Excellent fine and casual dining
  • Bakeries to tempt your taste buds
  • Local micro-breweries and wineries
