Suquamish Museum

Museum featuring the history of the Native American tribes in the Pacific Northwest.

Reviewed By HereWeGo282 - Albany, California

Just two rooms and a retail shop. But very beautiful and well laid out. Useful history on a cedar wall ribbon, basketry, a few samples of woven fabric, a lovely large wood carving of a canoe held up by 8 different creatures and a fantastic exhibit of the rebirth of the Elwah River in the original Suquamish homeland. Inspired me to visit the river on a future visit. Nicely done.

Bloedel Reserve

Reviewed By MissIppiSwagman - Mississippi

This fun adventure began with a wonderful, windy ferry ride over to Bainbridge Island from Seattle. Once there, the staff of the Reserve could not have been more pleasant and helpful about how I could best enjoy the space. Those people were worth the price of admission. Things got better from there. Now, to be fair, don't go with the expectation of a carnival. It's a Reserve, and a great one.

Reviewed By BS833 - Flower Mound, Texas

If you are interested in naval submarine history at all, this is a great place to visit. It is also free, which is a bonus. My husband is more of a fan than me, but I was willing to give it a try. It is not very big, but there is a lot of information there. The section of the museum on how dolphins and other animals help the navy was being renovated while we were there. I was sorry to miss that as I love dolphins.

I like visiting here. It seems they always have something new to see. I particularly like to see the orange octopus they rescued. These animals really do have personality. The volunteers are always knowledgeable and like to share the stories.

Kitsap Mall

For shopping near Bremerton and Kitsap-Bangor Naval Base, the Kitsap Mall in Silverdale hosts Khol's, Macy's, JCPenney and Sears department stores plus over 100 other mall shops and restaurants. The mall is on the Kitsap Peninsula south of Hwy 3 at the Kitsap mall Blvd exit.

Reviewed By DoloresJacoby - West Palm Beach, Florida

This mall requires a car to navigate. There are extensive stores from major chains such as Macy's, Target, Pier 1, Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, Barnes & Noble to mom and pop stores and of course lots of restaurants. There's even a Goodwill Store. There truly is something fir every need. Landscaping in some lots is beautifully done. I run there from the peninsula fir home furnishing needs. I love Eclectic, Tuesday Maxx and World Bazar for household things.

Heronswood Garden

Reviewed By GrayRanch - Oregon

This is an absolutely beautiful place, and exceptionally well cared for. We had a wonderfully relaxing time strolling the paths and looking at the plants. There were many volunteers there working on the place, we chatted with them occasionally, and we also ran into Dan, who I believe originally designed the Garden. We were there on the 4th Saturday of the month, when it is open for self-guided tours for $10. Watch your directions or you'll drive right past it the first time (we did).

Reviewed By watravelinggal - Port Orchard, Washington

We attended our first indoor concert there last evening.We were impressed with this venue. Staff were very cordial and helpful; the chairs were arranged to give plenty of leg room and are even comfortable! The aisles were spacey enough to actually walk through(unlike airplanes!). The audio was excellent. There was a bar set up and the prices were reasonable. The bathrooms were immaculate!
I had talked with Casino staff when purchasing the tickets. Staff was great for the process. Concert tickets were affordable. We appreciate that.

Wonderful award winning LEEDS architectural space to view art. It changes often and spotlights different collections every 3-4 months. A fabulous Bistro for light lunches with excellent savory tarts and soups. The gift shop is a bonus and well as the narrated Tuesday night movie series. There is NO admission fee so art is accessible to all who want to visit.

While our stay here was great (in cabin #4) I'd like to spotlight the camp host, John.

John is fantastic, whether it's tips on how to get the most out of your token-operated shower, how to find a nearby heron rookery, or where to camp next, John is your man.
Absolutely the best camp host we've ever run into in the PNW.

You made our stay excellent! Thank you!

Muriel Iverson Williams Waterfront Park

Reviewed By Cherie F - Poulsbo, Washington

Great place to sit and meet tourists, or locals. Lots of parking,
restaurants, antique and art shops. Enjoy overlooking the harbor, rent a kayak. I have lived here 30 years and never get tired of the waterfront. Do not miss the boardwalk, watch the seals basking with their young in spring.
