Port Orchard

The City of Port Orchardís identity is anchored in its connections to the past. Originally a booming lumber town called Sidney, Port Orchard became Kitsap Countyís first incorporated city in 1890. 

One of the best ways to arrive from Seattle is by foot ferry from the Bremerton Ferry Terminal. You can also arrive by crossing the Tacoma Narrows Bridge or the Hood Canal Bridge if you are arriving from the Olympic Peninsula.

The historic foot ferry, The Carlisle II, is one of the original Mosquito Fleet boats that was the primary mode of transportation around the Puget Sound in the early 1900's, and today connects Downtown Bremerton and Port Orchard with opportunity to explore both waterfronts all year-round. 

Port Orchard's charming downtown waterfront features antique shops, dining with local brews & bites, walking paths, a playground and community park for family friendly activities, and much more!   

There is extensive public access to waterfronts and marinas. The Port Orchard Marina, located in Downtown, offers guest moorage and is walking distance to several shops and attractions, including the waterfront park which hosts the weekly farmers market and annual festivals on the bay.  

Another attraction is The Sidney Museum which was the first Masonic Temple building in Port Orchard.  The Museum includes a general store, school, doctor's office and hardware store.  The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Port Orchard also offers veterans memorials and museums, state and county parks, scenic drives, walking trails and paths, shopping, and activities such as bowling and movie theaters.
