Hello Barbara,

I guess it would be depend on what you were hoping to see? Bainbridge has become a bedroom community for Seattle and while there are fun things to do there I would recommend a day trip to Vashon Island instead. Vashon is a smaller community but has a funky and eclectic town center. Vashon Island is also accessible by Washington State Ferry and is actually a quicker ride. You can catch that ferry from Admiral in West Seattle and West Seattle is a nice walk around in and of itself. If you have more time and money take some time and head up to the San Juan Islands.

Yes,. Ferry ride is great. Winslow is a lovely little town with some nice restaurants. And they have a very vibrant museum there. But my favorite thing on Bainbridge is the Bloedel Reserve. a beautiful garden. There is a bus there if you don't have a car as it's outside of town. Bloedel Reserve is a scheduled stop on Kitsap Transit’s BI-RIDE, operating TUES-SAT. Last pick-up is between 3:20 and 4:00 PM. Call 1-844-4BI-RIDE or visit BI-RIDE for regularly scheduled drop-off and pick-ups, holiday schedule, and reservation options. Reservation lines are open from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
