Readers reveal their favorites in North Kitsap Most people know North Kitsap for its forests and shores, for Norwegian-themed downtown Poulsbo, and for culture-rich Little Boston and Suquamish. Turns out, there’s a sexy side to North Kitsap too. According to our latest survey, residents here aren’t shy about public displays of affection. Their Best Places to Make Out include the waterfront, local parks, Albertsons and the Oak Table Cafe. That should make the dining and shopping experience more interesting. There are other surprises in our annual Best of North Kitsap. A record 1,300 readers responded to our annual online survey, submitting nominations in approximately 80 categories. Look within these pages and you’ll see the people and places that survey respondents say are standouts in various Services, Food, Shopping, Entertainment, Fitness & Sports, Public Servants, and Best Aspects of Living in North Kitsap. The nominees help make living here a special experience. They deserve a shout out, as do the readers that participated in our annual survey. Thank you all.The special section you are holding helps tell the story of North Kitsap’s communities: Poulsbo, Kingston, Eglon, Hansville, Indianola, Keyport, Little Boston, Port Gamble, Suquamish. North Kitsap is an exciting, thriving place where diversity reigns: Beaches, farmland, forests, sea views, seaside towns, wildlife. Entertainment, recreation, retail, services and tourism. If you’re looking for a contractor, a restaurant, a gift shop, a place to work out or, ahem, a place to make out, you’ll find the Best of North Kitsap a fun source.
