Situated against the Sinclair Inlet with the Cascade and Olympic Mountains in the distance, Port Orchard (population 14,770) is the county seat and the commercial center for South Kitsap. Port Orchard is a historic ‘port’ discovered and named by early Puget Sound explorers, with one of Puget Sound’s largest marinas – owned and operated by the Port of Bremerton. The community is completely oriented toward the water with miles of winding, scenic roadways passing beautiful inlets and hidden coves.
Our downtown corridor offers shopping, museums, entertainment, galleries and dining. Port Orchard residents enjoy a true sense of community and enjoy a thriving Farmer’s Market, weekly Artwalk, the annual Fathom’s O’ Fun Parade in June, and the Jingle Bell Run and Festival of Chimes and Lights every December. Amenities include a beautiful waterfront park, nearby Manchester State Park and premier golf courses. With ferry access from Bremerton and Seattle, an excursion to or from Port Orchard is an easy day trip or a weekend getaway. When visiting our city, it is hard to miss the majestic view of the Olympic Mountains and the pride of military heritage just across the water at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.
