The city of Poulsbo was founded in the 1880s by a Norwegian immigrant named Jorgen Eliason. The town's name roughly translates from Norwegian as "Paul's place."
You don't have to be Scandinavian to appreciate the Nordic theme to the shops and restaurants in downtown Poulsbo, but it does reflect the town's interesting history. Up until World War II, Norwegian was actually the town's primary language, but don't worry -- today you can order your cheeseburger and fries in English! It's this rich culture and unique heritage that brings plenty of tourists to the area. The town's harbor and three nearby marinas mean that it's easy to access the city by boat, should you so desire.

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Poulsbo renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.
However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.
Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.
It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.
Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.
However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
