With the spotlight frequently pointing at Bainbirdge and the San Juan Islands, locals and tourists alike often forget about this little piece of Pacific Northwest paradise. As one of the less developed islands in the Puget Sound, Vashon Island is an ideal destination for those who want to get in touch with their earthier side. The island is also one of the easiest to get to, as 20-minute ferry rides are available from West Seattle, Kitsap County and Tacoma. Check out the island's farmers market, strawberry festival, quaint shops, eclectic scenery, and beautiful beaches.
