The Pacific Northwest isn’t known for having white Christmases – we just don’t get that much snow. But on the bright side, we don’t get that much snow! That means if you love Christmas spirit but don’t like feeling nervous on the road or shovelling the driveway, the Kitsap Peninsula is the place to be!
Kitsap’s Bainbridge Island is a beautiful retreat from the everyday, and many talented artists and craftspeople call it home! From November 29 to December 30, they will be opening their doors and inviting you in! Christmas in The Country is a self-guided tour of these artists’ homes, studios and art spaces that lets you find truly one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your shopping lists, all while supporting independent artists! The tour is absolutely free – you only spend money if you find something worth buying! SPOILER: you will find something worth buying.
Christmas and heavy metal – two great tastes that taste great together! Believe it or not, it’s a proven formula; years ago, a group of musicians got together and started playing classic Christmas carols with a wailing guitars and epic drama. They called themselves the Trans-Siberian Ochestra, and they were a surprise hit all over the world! In fact, they were successful enough that several of the founding members went on to form The Wizards of Winter, another touring group that brings incredible excitement back to the music of Christmas. They’ll be playing at the Admiral Theater in Bremerton on December 8 – put on your leather jacket AND your jingle bells!
The holidays are a wonderful time, but they can also be quite stressful. If you need a break from the stresses of December, then book a room at the Best Western Plus Silverdale Beach Hotel. Perched on the water’s edge, you can watch winter winds blow across the water our Beachfront Martini Lounge or from the complimentary hot tub!
