Bainbridge Island Reviews

I was born in California, and moved frequently throughout my childhood. I have lived in small farming towns and coastal cities, downtown communities and tiny backwoods neighborhoods; but nowhere I have lived has left such an impression on me as Bainbridge Island has. The Island, though small, is a vibrant, beautiful place covered in soaring green forests and bordered by stunning rocky beaches. As a community the Island is extremely safe, with a fantastic education system and public parks teeming with camps and clubs in the summertime. The Island is an affluent suburb of Seattle, but has its own strong character and individual identity. Without a doubt, I have grown and flourished on this Island, and its culture will always be a part of me.

Bainbridge Island is a very tight-knit community that offers a range of opportunities. The island life offers a laid-back attitude, yet still has a lot of hardworking and dedicated people on it. The community support is what makes the island so special and unique. However, if you are under the age of 21 there is not much to do here besides hangout at friends houses.
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.
