Silverdale is an excellent place to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, especially the water, due to its location on the Kitsap Peninsula. Silverdale meets Dyes Inlet to the south and is only roughly two miles away from two bays on either side. Locals and visitors to the Dyes Inlet area can enjoy Silverdale Waterfront Park and a number of picnic and camping facilities along the beach. If you plan to stick within the northern part of the area, you can hit the shores of Island Lake or travel just across the community’s lines to Island Lake Park.
Despite its size in land area, you will not be isolated and forced to travel far to meet your shopping needs in Silverdale. Silverdale Way, which cuts right through the community and almost divides it in half, is packed with shops and boutiques. Many locals fondly refer to the street as “Silverdale’s Strip Mall”. Along the Way, you can find national favorites such as Kohl’s, T.J. Maxx, and Sears, as well as local gems Silverdale Cyclery and Silverdale Coin Shop. The Silverdale Plaza and Silverdale Village Shopping Center offer small collections of shops and stores, along with dining options, all in one convenient location.
Small Community, Big
Despite its small size, Silverdale is not without its city-style entertainment and night life. After a long day at work, grab some friends or a loved one for a night on the town. Kick the evening off with a dinner and a movie between Silver City Restaurant & Brewery and Central Stage Theater on Silverdale Way or Silverdale Cinema on Poplars Avenue, then head out for drinks or food at Old Town Bistro Martini and Wine Bar. Venture into Bremerton for a night of excitement at E & J Reyes Mabuhay Lounge, or stay local and sing until your lungs give out at Old Town Tavern.
