SOAK UP THE LAST OF SUMMER ALONG THE SOUND

Travel Tips for Puget Sound Visitors | Early Fall 2015

As summer makes its last stand, communities Bainbridge Island and Gig Harbor to Seattle and Tacoma promise plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of the most beautiful weather of the year. Special events, community festivals, and family-friendly activities – it’s the perfect time to visit the Puget Sound.

It’s not too late for a little whale watching. Oak Harbor residents enjoy especially easy access to Port Townsend, where they can embark on the Port Townsend-San Juan Island Whale Watching Tour aboard the Puget Sound Express, now through September 26th.
