"Great Place to Live, Not Much for Tourists" Bainbridge Island by glabah

Bainbridge Island Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 72 photos

Bainbridge Island is a popular location for Seattle's more wealthy residents to live. On a clear day, you can get wonderful views of Mt Rainier, the Seattle skyline (though it is very distant from the island) and the Olympic Mountains (if looking west).

However, there is very little public land here. Almost all of it is residential land for wealthy people who commute to Seattle, and whose estates are large enough that they don't need such simple public accomodations as public beaches or parks.

It is a popular tourist route for people to get from Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula, however.
