Trips to Discover recently updated its list of America’s 16 Friendliest Cities for 2022, and Gig Harbor made the cut.

Trips to Discover is a digital travel magazine with a monthly readership of over 1.6 million people. It helps readers discover their next travel destination, providing tools, tips and facts about destinations around the world.

A few other cities that made the list are Bend, Oregon; Key West, Florida; Savannah, Georgia; and Sedona, Arizona

After researching, reading reviews, and looking at places for personal experience, freelance travel writer KC Dermody named Gig Harbor to the list. Cities are not listed in any order.

Dermody lived on the Olympic Peninsula and knows Gig Harbor well.

“I’ve lived in many places across the country and tried to draw on my personal experience as much as possible when creating the list,” Dermody told Gateway.

“I’ve been to Gig Harbor so many times and the people are always so friendly. It’s beautiful and makes for great photos,” Dermody said.

“The people of Gig Harbor are incredibly friendly. There’s a deep sense of community, a place where people often strike up conversations online while grocery shopping and helping their neighbours,” according to the Trips To Discover website.

The list of the 16 friendliest cities in America is updated every few years.
