GIG HARBOR AS A NATIONAL MARITIME HERITAGE AREA
The State of Washington continues its effort to designate the entire Puget Sound.
Ultimately, it means better communication and coordination of Heritage Tourism for Western Washington’s saltwater coast. The story of our Maritime Heritage defines us as a region and is a story of national importance. There are no other National "Maritime" Heritage Areas – we would be the first in the country.
To learn more about this effort go to the National Maritime Heritage Area on the City's site.
