—newly proclaimed the “Metropolitan Center of the West Puget Sound” is the largest city in Kitsap County located on the Beautiful Kitsap Peninsula between the majestic Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges in Washington State.

The Bremerton area offers some of the best views of mountains and water as well as some of the best boating and recreational opportunities in the Greater Puget Sound Area. Within a mile radius you will find several attractions and facilities to visit and explore. Welcome to the Kitsap Peninsula.

Bremerton is in the midst of a huge downtown core revitalization process, which has caught the eye of many –

The cities vision and optimism has given the residents and small business owners a much needed boost of confidence in the rebuilding of the once grand downtown Bremerton.

Bremerton is divided by the waters of Port Washington Narrows into what the local residence refer to as East Bremerton and West Bremerton. The areas are connected by the Manette and Warren Avenue bridges. Bremerton is a city of history and can boast many unique neighborhoods, such as Manette, with its art culture/Bohemian appeal in East Bremerton; Charleston, a back to yesteryear section of the city filled with some 1930 charm, and several others that will have you admiring rows of waterfront homes on the shoreline or looking to neighborhoods that will remind you of your childhood.

Bremerton has it all. With home prices considerably lower than on the Seattle side of the water and yet still being able to offer amazing water and mountain views, it is no wonder that Bremerton is a community that can attract those that work in Seattle.

Along with affordability Bremerton offers many cultural programs. The Bremerton High School complex has a modern performing arts center and provides a venue for theater, opera, dance and the Bremerton Symphony. Bremerton isn’t “your Dad’s Navy town”.

Yes, I would say Bremerton residents have it all. We have an amazing community that can brag of a close knit small town feel all the while being able to enjoy the big city lights of Seattle via a relaxing, scenic ride on part of the largest ferry system in the country.

Bremerton – where you can walk the shoreline, watch eagles fish, watch whales play in a nearby inlet and where you can be in the Mountains or at the Beach in around an hour if you don’t stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Bremerton has been ranked by Money Magazine as one of the future hot spots among cities with under 250,000 residents. In 2002, Bremerton was listed as the eighth-best place in the West to live among population areas from 100,000 to 249,999.
