The people here in Gig Harbor are some of the friendliest people that I know. People are always willing to help others and are happy to do so. There are people of all ages that live here, it is perfect for kids all the way to elders. We support the Seattle Seahawks very much and lots of stores will display the Seahawks logo in their window or somewhere in their store. I love living in Gig Harbor!
Review Artondale
I love Gig Harbor! The people are super friendly and you have everything you could ever need in this city. Downtown is breathtaking, especially on clear sunny days. I would highly recommend this area, its perfect for families of all ages.
Gig Harbor is not only beautiful, but it is community focused. There is an overall pride in homeownership. The neighborhoods are generally well maintained, and safe. There are few areas that qualify as "bad" areas (unlike many places in WA - several of which on your list). Convenience is also a key factor in GIg Harbor. There are plenty of amenities that make it possible not to have to leave Gig Harbor and pay the toll. The toll is the only drawback.
