The Scandinavian roots of Poulsbo are conservative, hard-working and Christian. However, there is a substantial number of people in Kitsap County, including Poulsbo, following pagan, wiccan, and native american beliefs. I attribute it to the proximity and abundent beauty of nature all around, so it makes sense that people follow practices that pays homage to the seasons and the earth.

Latest census and other surveys found that Only about 1/2 a percent are christian. Rest are non-christian religions or athiests. The people are Narcistic. If they know something is harming health or extremely annoying or incroaching on the comfort safey and rights of others or dangerous to others they dramatically increase the behaviour to "get back at" and "you dont like it here take that" "Ill show you". You call that nice people and christian behaviour and attitudes? Vindictive and hateful is what it is. As far a hard working they are the reason that Gov workers have a bad name. Not all Gov workers are lazy and dont earn their money but here in kitsap County they do almost no work for their high salaries. And then gripe, whine about how "poor" they are. The Norwegians are multi generational inbred. Dont delete me Sperlinsg there are county, city, state and police records as well as thousands of people who were born in incest and/or molested as children as proof that it is fact. They cant learn or understand anything and do everything the most slow, dangerous, inefficent, harmful, time wasting and stupid way possible.

Enjoy Living Here - 4/29/2013

I've been a resident of Poulsbo for 2 years, lived on Bainbridge Island for a few months, in Lacey (near Olympia) and Port Orchard before that. I've only been in WA for 4 years at this point. Poulsbo has charm; is Norwegian and celebrates that and is a lovely place to live. Of course, there are bad sides to everywhere. The Post Office is small enough that you can't ship anything on off hours--but Silverdale is close enough that I can go there and use their automated machine in the lobby to get postage for a box and ship it. Downtown is quaint and has good food, nice shops, but is more than I spend many times. Most people are friendly "we're here if you need us" individuals who are very private, yet will enjoy a glass of wine or spot of tea with a neighbor occasionally. It's a community of dentists, orthodontists, lawyers, doctors, electricians, landscapers and more. You name it, someone with that professional probably lives in Poulsbo. Most individuals are community minded but I've seen disagreements arise that cause angst that can't be resolved, too (though rare). Long time residents' children come back to live here many times. Easy access to the Olympic Mts; easy access to water, docks and ferries; easy access to Seattle; bus system works well, especially for trips to ferry to walk on to Seattle. Local community college is excellent; easy access to numerous other colleges as well; skilled and unskilled workforce live throughout the area. Peaceful; good farmer's market, easy access to organic foods including beef, pork, chicken; soon to have a Safeway as well as the cultural grocery center "Central Market" and Albertson's. Other than that--head to Silverdale and let them have all the traffic![read more...]

Poulsbo and the surrounding community offers a a quality of life that can recharge the soul and spirit of anyone. People here are friendly, courteous, thoughtful,kind and ever willing and open to take the time to practice the golden rule. The pace of life is calming. No one is here to rush or outdo the other. And, all of the beauties of nature surround you no matter where you travel. Cultural events are everywhere and the city of Seattle with its many offerings is just a short 20 minute ferry ride away. Sailors come from afar to dock their sailboats at the most unique and quaint Poulsbo harbor to enjoy good food and the best bakeries around.[read more...]

Don't Count on Getting Out of Your Car - 6/6/2007

Poulsbo is part of Kitsap County, which has the most shoreline of any county in the State of Washington. Washingtonians tend to have an aversion to building bridges or expanding or building new highways until about twenty years after they are needed and that certainly includes Kitsap County. So we drive AROUND a lot of bodies of water on overcrowded two-lane highways. Add to that the fact that the State has cut the funding for ferry and bus transportation and suddenly you have no option but a car. We can bike, but this is not flat land by any definition and very few bike paths.[read more...]
