There are so many different events happening on the Kitsap Peninsula in the month of December, the only hope is to take an extra day or two off and make it a nice long-weekend. The holiday season is the perfect time to spend some quality, one-on-one time with family and friends. According to research..there are many employees with lots of un-used vacation days just waiting to be used. If you are one of them, we have some good news!

The Kitsap Peninsula is just 30- to 60-minutes away by ferry, bridge or highway. In no time, you are away from the crush and rush of traffic, city noise and lights.Nearly every single city and town is located on the waterfront where you can enjoy it all…wide-open spaces, wood trails, beaches, shopping and award-winning micro-brews. Travel to for all things Kitsap Peninsula.

We promise you will find holiday events and attractions for visitors of all ages and interests.  Visit our website to find the perfect place-to-stay for your holiday getaway on the Kitsap Peninsula.
