Neighborhoods

 

The city of Gig Harbor comprises just over six miles, though the city itself is only a fraction of the greater Gig Harbor area that includes the Key Peninsula across Henderson Bay to the west and Fox Island to the south.

Gig Harbor proper and beyond contain a multitude of varied and desirable housing options suited for a wide range of needs. Take your pick: whether it’s country acreage or horse property, condo-style or country club living, or a new or established subdivision you’re looking for, there’s something for every lifestyle.

The Gig Harbor area boasts world-class recreation, top-notch medical and health care services, high quality education, easy water access and beautiful views, and ever-increasing economic development. Each area in the greater Gig Harbor region has its own characteristics that make it a unique neighborhood, set apart from the rest.
