Thank you for your interest and welcome to Bainbridge Island. This section of our web site is designed to give you all the information you need when planning to move here.

Our community is home to a very diverse group including active retired persons, families of all sizes, singles. Most come for the rural solitude, the community feeling, the excellence in education, arts and cultural opportunities, our parks and water views.

While many of our residents commute across the Sound or the bridge, we have a thriving local economy made up of store-front and home-based businesses, professional services and limited, clean light manufacturing.

The culture of the island provides a completely different pace of life—a little slower and a lot more friendly. On Bainbridge Island you get the best of both worlds—city and country life all outside your front door. We hope that you will see for yourself how beautiful island life can be.

We invite you to visit our island’s versatile neighborhood centers, including historic Winslow, Lynwood Center, Island Center, and Rolling Bay. We invite you to attend any of our Chamber of Commerce functions and learn about all of the many ways we serve the island businesses, organizations, residents and visitors.
