Local Dining at Hey Day Farm

heydayfarm6One of the many wonderful things about Bainbridge Island is the community. Hey Day Farm has successfully captured the spirit of community on Bainbridge Island by hosting Community Dinners on Tuesday nights at their farm located at 4370 Old Mill Road NE. On a recent Tuesday evening, I attended this Community Dinner with my husband. We parked our car and arrived to the scents and sights of a blooming garden with the Inn at the Farm in the background where Tadao Mitsui was preparing the dinner in the kitchen of the Farmhouse. No reservations are taken at the Community Dinners which are offered year-round from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Continue reading

How To See Bainbridge Island Without a Car

How to Get Around Bainbridge Island WIthout a CarBainbridge Island is only 8.5 miles away from downtown Seattle, and is best reached via the 35-minute Washington State Ferry from Coleman Dock. Getting here can require a little bit of patience and advanced planning, but luckily, it’s one of the few destinations on this side of the Puget Sound that is not only easy to get to, but easy to get around. We recently posted a blog that serves as an excellent guide to the many different options for transportation on Bainbridge Island. But truly, we think one of the easiest and most interesting ways to get around Bainbridge Island is without a car. Much of Bainbridge Island is walkable, and when things get a little too far, there are always bikes available to rent. Once you start exploring, we don’t think you’ll want to stop. Check availability at the many Bainbridge Island Lodging properties, so you can keep the adventure going. Continue reading

Transportation: Getting To and Around Bainbridge Island

Modes of Transportation and Getting to Bainbridge IslandBainbridge Island is only 5 miles away from downtown Seattle as the crow flies, but getting here can require a little bit of advance planning.  Luckily, it’s one of the few destinations in Washington State that you can get to, and get around on, using only public transportation and your own two legs.  But, don’t worry; there are also plenty of other options for transportation if you don’t want to walk and/or bike everywhere you go! Bainbridge Island offers a variety of different modes of transportation that will get you around the island, whether or not you have your own car.

By far the easiest way to enjoy the charmed life on Bainbridge Island is to leave your car at home, and arrive via the Washington State Ferry system.  The Ferry departs from Coleman Dock in downtown Seattle on a regular schedule. Once you’re here, navigating around the island is easy. The Downtown Winslow core of Bainbridge Island is easily walkable from the ferry terminal, and the Bainbridge Downtown Association has produced a walkabout guide. The guide inludes the locations of Art Galleries, Museums, shops, restaurants, outdoor activity areas, and even real estate. Definitely take your time exploring our charming downtown; there are some really great shops and hidden treasures worth exploring! Continue reading
