What Bert Has To Say About Bremerton-Silverdale Metro Area

The Bremerton-Silverdale metropolitan area represents a group of island communities across Puget Sound’s main channel. Bremerton is the largest city with seaport and shipbuilding activities, but the character of the area outside of the city and on other islands is mainly suburban and rural, with small towns and commuter communities on Bainbridge Island and Vashon Island, among others. Bainbridge itself has suffered some economic decline in its major industries, and the downtown area experienced some decay but has also undergone some revitalization; the result is a mixed bag. Silverdale is a residential and shopping area just north.
