A one hour ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bremerton Washington is truly a charming old city. Locals enjoy the Kitsap Conference Center, two hotels, fine dining, coffee shops, art shops, cafes and the Port of Bremerton Marina in the downtown marina district. Bremerton has several different neighborhoods all divided by beautiful bridges over large bodies of water. If you love golf, don't miss the city-owned Gold Mountain Golf Course which includes two 18-hole championship courses.
Bremerton originally hit its stride in the 1940’s during WW2 but has seen tremendous amounts of urban renewal revitalizing the downtown area in recent years. It is home to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and they are very proud of their Naval heritage. Navy life as enlisted members and civil service workers is still a strong part of this community. Shopping, quality health services and affordable housing – even on the waterfront areas – makes Bremerton a smart choice for many people who love calling this town home.
