This charming island, just a short clip from bustling Seattle, feels like a breath of fresh air. There are marine and mountain views in every direction, 32 miles of trails over 1600 acres of parklands, a world-class aquatic center, two marinas and golf courses. The public schools are some of the best in the state, and our community generously supports the arts.
While it is a thriving tourist destination, it is also a dynamic working town with unique neighborhoods, fashionable boutiques, gourmet grocery stores, and a summer farmer's market.
Commuting is easy via a 35-minute ferry ride with WIFI service and a direct connection to downtown Seattle.
