A mere 30-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island feels a world away. The island overflows with quiet country roads, lovely gardens, beautiful beaches, wineries and even a farmers market. A hop to the island is a favorite day trip from Seattle because it boasts a lively arts community including a performing arts center and arts and crafts gallery. Visitors may also enjoy shopping in historic Winslow which is full of locally owned shops featuring everything from practical house wares to unique gifts from the Northwest. If outdoors is more your thing, enjoy a walk through the Bloedel Reserve, or go boating, hiking, biking, horse riding, out to the greens for a little golf or hit the tennis courts. No matter the endeavor, make Brainbridge Island your next big adventure.
