Gig Harbor is one of the most picturesque small cities in America. The city was named from the Wilkes Expedition in which the crew entered the harbor in a longboat called a "captain's gig". These three fishermen rowed from British Columbia to Gig Harbor and decided to stay. It is located on Gig Harbor Bay in Puget Sound across the Narrows Bridge from Tacoma. Due to its close access to several state and city parks, and historic waterfront that includes boutiques and fine dining, it has become a popular tourist destination. During off-peak traffic times, Tacoma can be reached in five minutes and Seattle in just under an hour.
