Wondering What to do on Bainbridge Island This Summer?

Do you find yourself wondering what to do on Bainbridge Island this summer, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic when most things are still closed?  You’re not alone!  We’re not sure what this summer is going to look like on Bainbridge Island. As a town that pretty heavily relies on tourism throughout the year, but especially in summer, the prospect of remaining closed or having limitations one just how many people can visit us in downtown Winslow is certainly something we’re thinking and worrying about.

Luckily, though, one of the many draws to Bainbridge Island is its rural character and the variety of things to do here that you just don’t find in the city.  This includes things like biking, hiking, and enjoying our parks and trails.  And, as per the order by Washington’s Governor, these things are all currently opened, with social distancing strongly encouraged.  Some of the best parts of Bainbridge, then, will still be open and available to you this summer. Your vacation might be a little more creative than it otherwise would have been, but we think this presents the perfect opportunity to experience what life on this quaint rural island is really about!

When it does come time for those mini-getaway and staycations that will surely be popular this summer, the lodging accommodations on Bainbridge Island will be waiting.  From a small boutique hotel in downtown Winslow to a variety of unique rental properties, the Bainbridge Island Lodging Association has something that will fit the needs of anyone who wants to visit here.  Browse through our listings, and discover your perfect getaway to Bainbridge Island just as soon as it’s safe to travel.

Bainbridge Island Parks and Trails Perfect for Social Distancing

The entire world, and especially the tourism industry which is so important to Bainbridge Island’s economy, is struggling in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s hard to talk about things to do and places to go as if times were normal, and that includes making trips to Bainbridge Island parks and trails. Washington State is currently on a stay at home order until at least May 4, but an extension looks likely.

Though we are still required to stay home to keep our homes and communities safe, Governor Inslee did announce that Washington State Parks and public lands would reopen to the public starting May 5th. We’re grateful for the ability to get out to our Bainbridge Island parks and trails again, and we thought we’d take some time to share some of our favorites with you.

We also think that, in the face of the extensive social isolation we’ve all been facing in recent months, it’s important to look forward and plan in some special trips and “you” time.  When it’s safe to do so, Bainbridge Island will still be here ready, and waiting to welcome you back as we have before. Many of our parks and trails, which really are one of the best parts of Bainbridge Island, can be enjoyed while keeping social distancing guidelines in mind, too.

When you do find your way to Bainbridge Island later this year, we hope you’ll stop and stay for a while, staying at one of our incredible lodging properties.  Browse through our collection of properties, and give yourself permission to start dreaming. Continue reading
