Bremerton vacation rentals

It's all hands to the deck in Bremerton

An hour's ferry ride west of Seattle, the historic waterfront city of Bremerton is probably best known as the home of the Puget Sound Navy Yard. Why not captain your own Bremerton vacation rental and have the city's buzzy waterfront, hip arts district, and a host of cool museums right on your doorstep? A Bremerton vacation appeals to all the family. Learn about America's lengthy naval history at the Puget Sound Navy Museum, experience life onboard a battleship at the USS Turner Joy ship museum, or come eye-to-eye with creepy crawlies at the Bremerton Bug Museum.

In the navy, you can sail the 7 seas... to Bremerton

Bremerton's extensive naval history is a big draw for ex-sailors, but you'll find there's plenty for landlubbers too. Book a Bremerton vacation rental in downtown and enjoy a waterfront picnic overlooking the Puget Sound. Or take a self-guided tour around the historic harborfront and down to Harborside Fountain Park, which lights up at night. The buzzy Arts District is a great place to pick up an old relic or 2vin the antique markets. And avid golfers can tee up on some of Washington State's top golf courses, situated just outside the city.

Bremerton's big on bugs and boats

A history buff's dream, there's no escaping Bremerton's naval heritage. A big draw to the city is the USS Turner Joy, a former destroyer-turned-ship museum which sits proudly on the harbor. After her service in Pearl Harbor and Vietnam, she was decommissioned in 1982 and turned into a fascinating naval museum for all the family. If your Bremerton vacation rental is in downtown, take the kids to the quirky Valentinetti Puppet Museum, and the Bug Museum, which has both live and preserved bugs to gawp at.

Putting the brrr into Bremerton

You'll need to pack for all 4 seasons on a Bremerton vacation. While the Kitsap Peninsula has a largely Mediterranean climate, it does see several more inches of rainfall than your average city. The summers are largely dry with plenty of sun, and temperatures reach the mid-70s. It can get overcast and much cooler come fall. The winter months between November and March can be variable, but are usually cold and wet, so don't pack your skis. Peak season is during the warm summer months, when Bremerton vacation rentals get snapped up quickly.

Find cougars, beavers, and bears, oh my!

Located an hour's ferry ride west of Seattle, Bremerton has sweeping views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. While there are a handful of smaller parks and forests close to Bremerton, a 90-minute drive further west and you're in the heart of the stunning Olympic National Park. It's famous for its various ecosystems, from rainforests and the Pacific coastline, up to the glacial peaks of Mount Olympus. A dream for both nature lovers and hikers, who often come across a variety of feathered and furry residents, including cougar, bears, and mountain beaver.
