Building Community Through A Vibrant Downtown
Visit Bainbridge Island and experience our wonderful, unique world. Escape from the hectic world of cities and malls, take a deep breath, kick back and relax. A simple streetscape retains our small-town character and a sense of place. We are one of only 12 nationally accredited historic Main Streets in Washington and you will find an eclectic variety of rewarding experiences.
We are different in all the right ways. Come see us – and stay awhile – longer.
On August 16th, representatives from Visit Seattle came to Bainbridge Island to explore our stunning sights, unique businesses, and to promote tourism. Visit Seattle is a private, nonprofit marketing organization that has been serving as Seattle and King County’s official destination marketing organization for more than 50 years. We are happy to have had them here and look forward to another visit!
