Although it's just 35 minutes by ferry from Seattle, Bainbridge Island is a totally different world.
If you like outdoors you can hike, bike or walk in the Bloedel Reserve or Fort Ward State Park. The Island is also known for its strong visual and performing arts culture. The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art is an educational institution whose mission is to engage a diverse population with the art and craft of our region and our time.
A unique National Historic Site inspired to represent the waves of time passing, the curving Memorial Wall is built on the historic Eagledale Ferry dock landing site. On March 30, 1942 - 227 Bainbridge Island men, women and children were forcibly removed by soldiers. They were the first mass community to arrive at the Manzanar concentration camp in California. The 276-foot long contemplative Memorial Wall of old-growth red cedar, granite and basalt honors the names of all 276 Japanese Americans at the start of WWII. It also honors the unique legacy of a community that stood by their friends and neighbors and welcomed them home.
We are taking the 10:35am ferry ($8 round trip) and plan on returning on the 3:45pm ferry.
