Puget Sound Islands

Wearing a watch is more of a fashion statement than a necessity on Bainbridge and Vashon Islands, where schedules run according to ferry departures rather than the tick-tock of the second hand. With no parking meters or traffic, the island communities may be the quieter versions of the taller neighbor across the Sound, but don't sell them short. From the wide arrary of boutiques to shop to places to nibble, these island nabes have the perfect combination of Seattle class and laid-back island style.
