Budget Travel magazine put the Bainbridge-Seattle route on its list of the most beautiful ferry rides in the United States.
Here’s what the mag had to say about the Bainbridge trip:
“Glide past sailboats and cruise liners on this quick hop across Puget Sound, with views of Seattle’s skyline and the snow-covered flanks of the Cascade Range. Weather permitting, you can even make out the 14,410-foot peak of Mount Rainier, about 100 miles away. Disembark on Bainbridge and spend the day exploring the island’s hiking trails and downtown cafés (try the caramel pecan French toast at Café Nola), then time your return trip to watch the dusk settle over Puget Sound, and the city itself.”
So put down your newspaper (unless it’s the Sun) on your next trip and take in one of the best views around.
