Bambridge Island, Washington is just a short ferry ride across the Puget Sound from Seattle. It’s a beautiful island with a beachy-feeling downtown. There are many restaurants and privately owned shops in town. Further back on the island you’ll find anything from small cottages to large mansions. There is a lot to do on the island, and it can be a wonderful way to spend a sunny day while visiting Seattle.
(Note: The drive and getting onto the ferry are difficult, but once you get there, the island is extremely easy to navigate.)
