Kitsap County Reviews
Some parts have a great view of the water and the plant life is abundant. There are good places to eat, new ones pop up all the time! Many areas have great prices on homes and for renting. There are also discount stores: good will, grocery outlet, saars, winco. There are also events held all over the county. Everything from music, comedy, charity, and poetry. The crime is low and most areas are well maintained. Downtown Bremerton is packed with shops of all kinds and the waterfront frequently hosts exciting events!
Kitsap county is a very laid back county and more than welcoming to the outsiders. We have water all around us, whether you like lakes or the sound, it is there for you. Want to snow ski? Just head out in many directions and you are there in a couple hours. We have several high schools and all the kids seem to know each other and get along well. Most of the activities in our area bring all the schools together.
The scenery and location to outdoor recreation is amazing. Traffic is minimal and the pace of life is much slower than neighboring Seattle. There is a bit of a homeless/ drug/ crime problem here but if you stay out of certain areas this is an absolutely wonderful and safe place to live.
