Life in Bremerton: A Bustling Naval Town With Lots to Do  

Bremerton, Washington, isn’t just the largest city in Kitsap County. It is a central hub of the U.S. Navy, home to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (the nation’s largest Naval shipyard) and part of Naval Base Kitsap (the nation’s third-largest Naval base). Bremerton’s status as a Navy town with water on three sides means there’s rarely a dull moment, whether you’re looking for a job, watching an aircraft carrier head out to sea, or partaking in any number of outdoor activities. Plus, Bremerton is just a 30-minute Fast Ferry ride (or 60-minute car ferry ride) from Seattle, providing easy access to additional entertainment and cultural events.
