Kitsap Peninsula is the arm of land that lies west of Seattle across Puget Sound and east of the Olympic Peninsula. It can be accessed by car via serveral roads. The main road that circumnavigates the Olympic Peninsula is U.S. Highway 101 but this road does not venture out onto the Kitsap Peninsula. Instead, State Highway 3 branches off from 101, tansverses the Peninsula and then rejoins 101 just outside of Port Townsend. If coming from Tacoma, State Highway 16 might be your best bet.
