Ferry to Bainbridge - Watch downtown Seattle fade in the distance as you make your way to Bainbridge Island is a sight you don’t want to miss. The ferry itself is a great experience, especially if you drive a car onto it. If it’s cold or rainy, you can grab a booth inside to stay warm and dry. While in Bainbridge, there is a nice shopping strip, and Fay Bainbridge Park at the north end of the island has a great beach and playground. On a clear day, it also has a great view of Mount Rainier.
