All About Kingston
Located on Puget Sound, a short ferry trip from Seattle, Kingston is a gateway to Washington’s Kitsap Peninsula and Olympic National Park. Anchoring the western end of the famous Washington State Ferry, the town offers scenic ferry and boat rides with views of snow-capped mountains, lush vegetation, and animals in their natural habitat. Whale watching is big here, as is kayaking, scuba diving, and fishing. After a long day on the water or exploring the surrounding wilderness, head to the charming downtown to find bakeries, independent boutiques, seafood restaurants serving the daily catch, and plenty of places to sip local beer and wine.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Kingston?
Kingston can experience harsh winters, with the lowest temperatures occurring from December to February. If you want to explore the snowy trails of Port Gamble Forest Heritage Park during this time, grab your coat, and you may get lucky and witness the arrival of winter seabirds and fall migrant birds. Summer is a wonderful time to secure Kingston vacation rentals and explore the coast. The temperature is warm July through September, and pleasant for activities like boating, golfing, and hiking the trails of the nearby forests. Spring is an excellent time to visit the Heronswood Garden and enjoy the beautiful flora in full bloom. In late spring, come to observe the Japanese wood poppy, one of the late bloomers.
