A tiny, picturesque community on the northern end of the Kitsap Peninsula, Kingston, Wash., sometimes called the "Little City by the Sea," is known for its role as the terminal for the Washington State Ferry's Edmonds-Kingston route. Homes for rent in Kingston offer access to the pristine Puget Sound inlet of Appletree Cove, making the area ideal for boating and other outdoor activities. And with its downtown full of shops, restaurants, galleries and more, there's always something fun to do in Kingston.
Kingston's charming downtown offers restaurants, ice cream parlors, bars, shops, galleries, bakeries and more, while Mike Wallace Park plays host to year-round community events such as Concerts on the Cove, Kites over Kingston and the Light Boat Festival. Outdoor activities such as kayaking, paddle boarding and biking are particularly popular given Kingston's ideal waterfront location. Additionally, the natural resources of Washington's spectacular Olympic Peninsula are only a short drive away.
