For a relaxing day trip, take the ferry to nearby Bainbridge Island. The ride takes half an hour and during the trip you can enjoy fresh air and spectacular views of the Seattle skyline. Pick up maps and information at the island's tourist center, which is only a few steps from the pier on Bainbridge. Then take the easy walk into town and visit quaint shops, cafes, restaurants and the Bainbridge Island Winery. You can also take a nice stroll along the waterfront.
Well, you see. I've lived here all my life(12 years total) and I've always loved the island. I love the people who live and work here. I love the schools, restaurants, stores, every thing. Unlike a lot of cities, we have VERY clean air, it's fresh and crisp. One disadvantage however is the ferry traffic. If you arrive (just as the ferry is getting off)where Day Rd. meets Highway 305, you might have to wait awhile. Also, where if you're downtown by Safeway and Rite Aid you could alos get stuck in traffic there. Well, i hope that you decide to come visit us on...BAINBRIDGE ISLAND!!!!!!!
First of all, the ferry ride to Bainbridge is a beautiful one, no matter what time of the day you take it. Secondly, the island itself is beautiful with a nice walkway for travelers and plenty of shops and restaurants along the way for the hungry. I would definitely want to go back to this relaxing and laid back island...maybe even live there.
