Kingston is a coastal town located on the shores of Appletree Cove. The delightful downtown is built around the often bustling ferry terminal. From there, you can drive or walk onto the ferry to Edmonds, which is just north of Seattle. You can also take a passenger-only fast ferry to downtown Seattle. Kingston offers a variety of charming restaurants, shops, and parks. Enjoy its gorgeous marina where you can see Mount Rainier on a sunny day. It wears its nickname, “the little city by the sea” perfectly. Whether you want a beautiful waterfront home, a picturesque country retreat, or something in between, Kingston might be the tranquil town you seek. And, not far from Kingston is the historic former logging town of Port Gamble with quaint shops and restaurants. Access to the Olympic Peninsula via the Hood Canal Floating Bridge is the northern access point all the way to the Washington Coast.
