Living on Fox Island
Just minutes away from Tacoma and Gig Harbor, this small island community is home to approximately 3,000 residents. The island offers a seemingly neverending supply of stunning views: Mt. Rainier, the snowy Olympic Mountains, McNeil Island, the Tacoma Narrows Bridges and more set the scene of natural beauty.
Although small and surrounding by nature, getting out and about on Fox Island is easy and convenient: the island offers its fair share of small businesses, services and restaurants. The setting is especially ideal for those who love exploring, and a visit to the beach, scuba diving, boating and fishing are a few of the popular activities available.
