Located in the shadow of the majestic Olympic Mountains and along the shores of Puget Sound, Port Orchard, Washington is an idyllic place to live. I love living in Port Orchard because of its close proximity to Seattle, accessible via a short ferry ride. Port Orchard is the perfect combination of small-town living and urban convenience. Due to its location between both Seattle and Tacoma, the area offers plentiful job opportunities in a myriad of industries.
Outdoor enthusiasts will delight in the many recreational opportunities the area affords its residents. The best areas in Port Orchard and the beaches and trails along Puget Sound. The nearby mountains also offer a multitude of hiking opportunities. Manchester State Park is a favorite among locals for its camping and hiking fun. The historic Log Cabin Museum is a step back in time, offering visitors a glimpse into the past. Neighboring town Bremerton features a boardwalk area boasting an eclectic mix of shopping and dining options.
