The Old Admiral

Bremerton has a number of scenic and historic sights to see once you get here. Their history as a naval yard brought jobs and workers from all around the Puget Sound region at the peak of World War II. During that time, the city flourished, and construction was rampant. One of those pieces of iconic architecture still stands today in the Old Admiral Theatre. What was once a cinema house for black and white flicks in the 1940s and ‘50s has since been transformed into a performance space for concerts and grand hall for banquets and special events.

Blackberry Festival

One of the main draws for Bremerton is the annual Blackberry Festival. Berries grow like weeds in this part of the world, and some say the Pacific Northwest provides the best climate to nurture and grow these succulent little morsels. You can be your own judge on this fact if you happen to be in the area during Labor Day weekend. All the local residents, shopkeepers and berry farmers bring out the big guns with pies, jams, candies, and even wines. There is music, food, dancing, and more. It is definitely worth a look if you time it right.
