Day trip from Seattle, request for general info

by LadyGallica

I am planning a day trip to Poulsbo from Seattle in early fall 05. Any must see sights, places to eat, general info tips?? It would be nice to hear from anyone who lives there since I'm also thinking of a relocation to Puget Sound area. Thanks

Poulsbo styles itself a Norwegian village. Otherwise, it's basically an extremely socially conservative suburb of Seattle. It's primarily known for having the largest RV dealership in the Puget Sound area. If you are an older person looking to retire to a very quiet place with not much going on, you might like it. It's a very pretty area and generally quite safe -- less meth action I think than the in the south Sound, though I could be wrong on this. You will get more for your money (real estate/rentals) in Poulsbo than in Seattle or some of the other suburbs. If you are under 60, you will probably want to look at other options as far as relocating. If you have your heart set on an island suburb of Seattle, I suggest looking at Bainbridge instead of Poulsbo. That being said, if you are new to the area, it wouldn't hurt to spend a day checking it out. The only place I've ever eaten is the Kiana Lodge but I think that's just an event site for weddings, etc. There's info on Poulsbo at www.poulsbo.net. If you drive from Seattle, there's a really nice state park between Bainbridge adn Poulsbo:

Happy travels!

Kayak in Liberty Bay. The weather was awesome for late September. The sun was shining bright, and Mt. Rainier was clearly visable. The water is very calm, so even if you've never kayaked before, you won't have a problem. We rented from Olympic Outdoor Center. Their website is: http://www.kayakproshop.com/

Of Sea and Shore Museum

by HasTowelWillTravel

Set above the general store in Port Gamble, the Of Sea and Shore Museum is an amazing collection of objects from the sea. It is on the second floor, which is basically a walkway around the walls with an opening in the middle to look down on the store. Along this walkway, there are dozens of cases, stuffed with all sorts of menagerie from the oceans. It represents the majority of the private collection of Port Gamble citizen Tom Rice. There is a tremendous amount there to see, especially if you enjoy natural history collections. He has a bunch of different crabs and shells from around the world. Definitely stop by when you're perusing the town. Best of all, it's completely free (donations are appreciated).

Museum hours: 9am-5pm Everyday.
Admission: $0

Address: Service Road 104
Port Gamble, WA 98364

Viking Village

"Home of the norsemen (and women)"

Poulsbo was a once sleepy town on the Kitsap Peninsula. It has changed over the years but still sells itself as a Scandanavian town. The town center has a main drag with tourist shops, restaurants, and other small art shops in which to spend a day wandering in. Since Poulsbo is right on the water, boating is a pastime as well as a way to get there. A nice little day trip from Seattle via the Ferry and a short drive
