Bainbridge Island Reviews

I have worked on Bainbridge Island for 9 years. Very friendly people, eco-conscious, and community oriented. Cute local shops and pretty good food. Many folk on Bainbridge Island Bike, so the island is pretty bike/ pedestrian friendly. Bainbridge Island has a very active community as a whole. From 5 years to 100 years old most of the population swims, bikes, play sports, or regularly attends the gym. Over-all a good place to live and work.

Bainbridge Island grew on me. When I first moved here, I disliked it immensely but after finding a social footing and getting involved in the community through volunteer work and extracurriculars, I couldn't imagine a better place to grow up. It's a quiet community with a general feeling of safety where you don't have to be on edge of possible crime. The people are generally friendly and overall it is a good community. Find your niche within this town and anyone can make it work.
Living on Bainbridge Island is like being taken to a far away, mystical place in a book such as Narnia. There are so many beautiful places on the island, and so much nature that you can get lost in. You can walk outside and breathe fresh air, not clouded by city pollution. You can take a hike in the Grand Forest for hours, you can walk along Point White at sunset and get the perfect picture. It is safe to say though, that if you are looking for a place with any nightlife whatsoever, this will not be the place. Most places close by 8 pm, and so you are left to either the Harbour Public house, or the Ale house which stay open until about 11pm or midnight. But, here's a catch. They don't ever have live music, or dancing, or the crazy drunken crowds you find crawling over the city. So, if you are more of the quiet, stay at home family type then this is the perfect place for you.
