Bainbridge Island is One of the Best Places to Live in the U.S.
In 2005, CNN named Bainbridge Island the second best place to live in the US. With a community that ticks off all the right boxes ( good schools, nice views, easy access to the big city ), Bainbridge is perfect for young couples who want to start a family.
But Bainbridge is also perfect for those who aren’t really looking to move per se, but just want to experience a city staycation like no other. As one of the most notable commuter towns in the country, Bainbridge has always functioned as a transport hub of sorts, servicing the travel and lodging requirements of both the local population and visitors alike.
In recent years, Bainbridge has evolved to make room for the thousands of tourists that visit the island every year, eager to experience what they have to offer.
Parking and Accommodations at Bainbridge Island
Lodging facilities and services abound in the area, and there’s no shortage of accommodation for either day visitors or those on an extended trip. One other important travel consideration, of course, is parking. As more and more visitors jostle for a parking space on the island, effective management of commuter traffic to and from Bainbridge has become an even more important concern for the local community.
There have been some occasions in the past when existing facilities were just not adequate enough to meet the demands of increased commuter traffic.
Something for Everyone
Tourists who travel to Bainbridge are advised to check out some of their beautiful parks and reserves. Guided tours are always available for those who might want to visit points of interest such as Fay Bainbridge Park, Bloedel Reserve, Fort Ward, and Battle Point Park.
The more adventurous can, of course, always opt for self-guided discovery treks that do take a bit more time to finish, but oftentimes turn out to be more rewarding.
There’s also a wealth of options available for those who might want to enjoy the more modern conveniences provided by social and community hubs within the city.

These are just a few of the wonderful businesses in and around Waterfront Park & City Dock one can visit to experience some of the island’s unique offerings.
