Bremerton is the largest city in Kitsap County, which is just a few minutes ferry ride from Seattle, WA. Also known as a "Navy Town" for being the home for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Bremerton Annex of the Kitsap Naval Base. Aside from the historical significance of the shipyard and the base, both are robust providers of income for the area.
