Bainbridge Island Reviews
Review Bainbridge Island
Great place to raise kids. However, it's expensive to live here unless you work in Seattle. Very upper-middle-class-white-soccer-mom kind of place. The schools are top in the state. Ironically, the arts are very well supported within the community but not in the schools. There is no nightlife to speak of, really. The ale house or other alcohol serving establishments are the only ones open past 8p except for the grocery stores. It's a beautiful, seaside town. Boring if you can't drink.
Living on Bainbridge Island is a great place to raise your family. Its schools are ranked top in the state, and provide excellent preparation for kids planning on attending college. It is a short ferry-ride to downtown Seattle, but far away enough to feel a sense of privacy. There are numerous things to do on the island, including movie theaters, exceptional restaurants, and many different parks to enjoy. I would definitely consider moving here in the future when thinking about raising a family. I would rank Bainbridge Island as one of the safest, best places to live in the entire country. I think Bainbridge Island also has a lot of potential to grow as a community, but as of right now it exceeds its expectations.
A beautiful, quiet island community that is known for it's green lifestyle and excellent education system. The island is a safe place, but the cost of living is a bit higher than normal.
