economy with inviting accommodations, interesting shopping, scrumptious

"Gig Harbor is…a quick 45-minute drive to Sea-Tac International Airport and an hour from downtown Seattle. For a more scenic trip to the Emerald City, take the ferry from one of several loading stops - all within an hour's drive of Gig Harbor on the peninsula. The bustling city of Tacoma is just a few minutes drive across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. And, as the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula, Gig Harbor is the perfect spot to plan your next trip to the rain forest, Victoria or any one of the wonderful communities between here and there."
