On the shore of Appletree Cove, Kingston is a 30-minute ferry ride from Edmonds for cars and walk-ons, or via passenger-only ferry, a 30 minute ride from Seattle. A rip-roaring lumber town 100 years ago, it’s quieter now as the constant whine of the sawmill has given way to the occasional blast of a ferry whistle. Known as the “Little City by the Sea”, Kingston is the northern gateway to the Kitsap Peninsula and Olympic National Park & Forest.
With the average home price being $446,700, there are so many great neighborhoods to explore in Kingston.

Kingston has a lively farmers market that runs May through October.
The community has a fun, old fashioned 4th of July parade that it is famous for. The busy marina has year round boat traffic and the local chamber of commerce puts on a fabulous holiday light display in the month of December.
There are plenty of local trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Because Kingston is a seaside community, water sports and boating are a popular activity.
Locals love the friendly, small town feel of their community and it is growing fast. Kingston’s proximity to Seattle and Edmonds makes it an attractive place for people to move to from the much more crowded and expensive city. More restaurants are popping up every year and projects like the new library, the new boys and girls club, and the new fast ferry to Seattle give everyone more reasons to live here year round vs just visit while traveling to common destinations like the Olympic National Park.
Kingston has over 16 restaurants and more are popping up every year. Crepes, Greek Food, Chinese, Farm to Table and several outstanding bakeries are just a few of the numerous options.
