Every Washingtonian has heard of the San Juan Islands, and many of us have visited Whidbey or Bainbridge a time or two. But unless you live in Western Washington, you may not be aware of Vashon Island’s existence.

While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

This is just a fraction of the fun things you’ll find to do on Vashon Island. It’s definitely one of Washington’s top hidden gems.
