Gig Harbor is nestled right outside Tacoma, Washington, on a peninsula that serves at the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. Named because it served as an early shelter for boats, Gig's Harbor is a mecca for tourists and residents alike who want to escape city-living but be close enough to Tacoma to commute. With shopping, dining, and recreation on every block in the historic downtown area, Gig Harbor is continually voted one of the best places to live in Washington.

One of the best parts about living in America is the freedom to choose where you want to live. From Gig Harbor to Caribou, Maine, there is a lot of variety, climates, and terrain from which to choose. You can live on the ocean, in the desert or the mountains, or on the plains. You can choose your lifestyle as well, if you want a rural community, a big city, or a smaller town feel with access to a bigger town setting. The hard part is actually deciding.

Team Aro specializes in helping those who wish to move to and from Gig Harbor. Our real estate agents are seasoned veterans of the area and can help guide you to your dream home. Whether you want to live close to the action and historic downtown, or you prefer to be closer to nature with walking trails and surrounding trees, Gig Harbor has it all.

Gig Harbor makes it easy for those looking for a temperate climate near Mother Nature and the ocean, and still having access to all the amenities that makes life easy, such as grocery stores, healthcare facilities, restaurants, and coffee shops. Below, we'll take a more in-depth look at some of the benefits of living in Gig Harbor. If you are thinking about relocating here, give Team Aro a call. We can help.

Easy Access to Big Cities

Many people love to be able to visit big cities. First, they offer sights and amenities that small towns don't. For example, concerts happen in larger cities where there are a lot of people. Traveling art shows come to big cities, and big cities tend to have any activity and hobby you are passionate about. Yet, these people don't want to live in big cities with traffic and so many people at every turn. Gig Harbor is only 20 minutes from Tacoma and less than one hour from Seattle. This safe, family-friendly location is ideal for those looking for the best of both worlds, and if you follow the Aro, we'll help you find your dream home. Call our real estate office today!

Near National Forests and State Parks

There's something about being alone in a forest full of trees that makes you realize just how big the world actually is and how small you actually are. Being on Puget Sound, the Olympic Peninsula is a stone's throw away. You can visit Olympic National Forest and Park and spend hours exploring the mountains, the lush rainforests, and the rugged Pacific coastline. At almost one million acres, you could spend years exploring here. Go east and Mt. Rainier National Park is almost as close. Whether you are a mountain climber or you just like hikes into the forest, Mt. Rainier National Park will easily take your breath away. With mountain wildflowers and ancient glaciers, you'll be taken back to the land before time — and time for you will most definitely stop.

If you just want to stay close to home, Gig Harbor offers many hikes and trails for you to explore. McCormick Forest Park Loop is an easy trail that makes for a great morning walk, and Cushman Trail is a paved walking and bike trail that hugs the coast, giving you great views of the harbor. Kopachuck State Park is a recreational area only six miles away from Gig Harbor, making it a close place to explore.


Team Aro understands how beautiful Gig Harbor is, and we love sharing this beauty with those looking to move here. We can help you find the home of your dreams, whether you need a large home with many bedrooms for your growing family, or you are looking to downsize to a smaller home as your retirement years approach. We offer many new build homes in the area, which are perfect for those who want to customize their home for specific needs. We work with some of the best builders in the area to bring you stunning new construction homes you'll drool over.
