Kingston

Known as the “Little City by the Sea” Kingston, a former logging town, is a busy port of entry, with ferry service to Edmonds on the other side of Puget Sound. Now the social and economic center of the north end of the Peninsula, Kingston features its own community center, theater groups and shopping district. With an independent movie theater and wonderful restaurants, Kingston is a treasure of a town!

With the launch of the new Kingston fast ferry, Kitsap Transit now provides convenient passenger ferry service from Kingston to Seattle and back. The weekday schedule serves commuters, residents, and visitors with early morning and late afternoon runs.

Nearby amenities include the historic Point No Point Lighthouse, and the legendary Heronswood Botanical Gardens. Kingston’s shops and restaurants as well as the Saturday Farmers Market are popular with both locals and boaters. The annual Old Fashioned Fourth of July features an old fashioned logging competition, parade, salmon bake, and craft fair.
