About the neighbourhood
Whew! No banging doors, no car doors slamming, no freeway noise! The Parsonage is located in a residential neighborhood. With Mt. Rainier looming majestic as a backdrop to Gig Harbor Bay, this is one of the most lovely places on earth! Gig Harbor is very centrally located to seeing many of the famous sites of Washington. Of course, everyone should spend some time in Seattle. The Seattle Center is only the starting point, from the Pacific Science Center, Space Needle, Dale Chihuly glass art and garden museum to a variety of children's activities. A visit to Poulsbo, a Scandinavian village, is only 50 minutes from The Parsonage. Take a ferry ride to Seattle, drive through Northwest Trek to see a wide range of animals in protected habitat, or drive to LaConnor, a Dutch village. Y... more
