Gig Harbor, with a population of 9,110, is ranked among the top five Best Small Towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine. Located along State Route 16, just across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge from Tacoma, Gig Harbor boasts panoramic views of Mt. Rainier, the Cascade and the Olympic mountains. With close access to several state and city parks, and an historic waterfront that includes boutiques and fine dining, it is a vibrant, growing, economically healthy, maritime community. Many commercial fishing boats make Gig Harbor their home port and the fishing fleet still gathers the first weekend in June (during the Maritime Gig Festival) in the center of the bay for the annual Blessing of the Fleet ceremony.
