Living on Bainbridge Island is a great place to raise your family. Its schools are ranked top in the state, and provide excellent preparation for kids planning on attending college. It is a short ferry-ride to downtown Seattle, but far away enough to feel a sense of privacy. There are numerous things to do on the island, including movie theaters, exceptional restaurants, and many different parks to enjoy. I would definitely consider moving here in the future when thinking about raising a family. I would rank Bainbridge Island as one of the safest, best places to live in the entire country. I think Bainbridge Island also has a lot of potential to grow as a community, but as of right now it exceeds its expectations.

A beautiful, quiet island community that is known for it's green lifestyle and excellent education system. The island is a safe place, but the cost of living is a bit higher than normal.

Bainbridge Island has a very low crime rate, and there is rarely any sort of violence that occurs. Police are always very responsive to any sort of call, and do a good job of making sure that their communities safety is their number one priority.
