Winslow, Bainbridge Island

View of Winslow Way Bainbridge IslandWinslow is to Bainbridge Island what Seattle is to Washington – it’s the heart of Bainbridge Island and it’s the first place you go when you walk-off of the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry. Winslow is clustered with shops, museums, galleries and restaurants. What should you do first? It kind of depends on the weather and if you are visiting with your kids.

If you’re visiting with your kids on a rainy day, two great indoor stops are the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum ($10/family) and KiDiMu – Kids Discovery Museum. In fair to good weather, with kids or no kids, I’d recommend starting out at Waterfront Park and then wandering from there. If you want to stretch out your legs a little, there’s a really neat waterfront loop trail that starts in Waterfront Park and leads to Strawberry Plant Park.

On your way back to the ferry, a great final stop is the recently remodeled Town & Country Market. T&C carries everything you’d expect in a normal grocery store plus hard-to-find specialty items, local produce/products, made to order sushi, local wines, gifts and much more. Avoid the ferry food and stop by T&C before you head home.
