Bainbridge Island, WA

Just a 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle, this artsy Puget Sound island is fast becoming one of the Northwest’s most happening wine destinations. Visit the island's buzzy tasting rooms, take a walk through a local park to overlook Manzanita Bay, and end the day with a bowl of French comfort food before heading back to the mainland.
