35 Minutes by ferry from downtown Seattle – a world away

A beautiful ferry ride across the Puget Sound transports you to Bainbridge Island, a 27-square-mile island that holds a rich history, unique combination of sophistication and simplicity, breathtaking beauty, and one-of-a-kind experiences.

A short walk from the ferry is our charming Downtown district, one of 12 Nationally Accredited Washington State Historic Main Streets. Stroll into downtown and enjoy a diverse selection of locally-owned shops and restaurants offering something for everyone, as well as wonderful experiences reflective of our region, from wine tasting, to adventures on the water such as diving and kayaking.

Take a look at our directory of the many Partners who make our small town a friendly and relaxing place to spend one day, or many. We hope to see you soon!
