Bremerton, Washington: The Natural Side of Puget Sound
Bremerton lies about 60 miles from Seattle, on the Kitsap Peninsula. The area has been dubbed the “Natural Side of Puget Sound” in contrast to its coffee-slurping neighbor to the east. It makes for a relaxing, outdoorsy escape from city life, with peaceful state parks, highly regarded golf courses, beaches, and a boardwalk.
To learn about the area’s rich naval history, you can tour the USS Turner Joy (one of the ships involved in the Gulf of Tonkin incident that helped ignite the Vietnam War). You can also visit the Puget Sound Navy Museum, where you’ll experience life aboard an aircraft carrier and check out photos and artifacts from decades of Pacific Northwest seafaring.
