We just moved to Bremerton about a year ago and absolutely love it!

There are gorgeous family friendly refurbished parks, the downtown has already had the sidewalks widened, more streets are becoming pedestrian friendly, and there are beautiful homes that are very affordable when compared to King County and Tacoma.

I will admit, I would like to see more little shops and restaurants fill the storefronts, but it's only a matter of time. I think that Bremerton gets a bad rap for how it looked a decade ago, but it is lovely now and getting better every month.
