Port Orchard Real Estate
Port Orchard is an ideal waterfront town, with many of its 10,000 plus residents living along the coastline. Port Orchard is the county seat of Kitsap County, and located across the inlet from Bremerton.
From the farmland to the marina’s lining the Peninsula, Port Orchard’s officials work to keep up the sense of community. Don’t miss the Majestic views of the Olympic Mountains and the pride of the military Puget Sound Naval Shipyard from the many shops, restaurants, and marina’s of historic downtown.
Port Orchard is a popular boating destination. Many boaters come from near and far to enjoy a day on the water. The Waterfront Park is a great venue for the local Farmer’s Market, Fathom’s o’ Fun festival, classic car shows, and concerts. It is also home to South Kitsap Community Park with many sport fields, batting cages, skate park, and kids’ playground. You can explore the old bunkers and many trails at Manchester State Park. There are many phenomenal campgrounds and parks to plan a great camping trip here.
With two ferries serving the Port Orchard community, you are only a boat ride away from Bremerton and Seattle. There is a passenger ferry to Bremerton that man military personnel as well as civilian use to make the 10 minute commute very pleasant. There is also a car/passenger Southworth ferry to West Seattle for easy access to the Seattle airport as well as many other attractions that can be more difficult to reach from even the more populated areas of Puget Sound.
Port Orchard is a great place to visit or make your home!
