Bainbridge Island is an island in Puget Sound, and is an incorporated city in Kitsap County, Washington, United States. The island's population was 20,300 at the 2000 census. In July 2005, CNN/Money and Money magazine named Bainbridge Island the second-best place to live in the United States. The local newspapers are the Bainbridge Island Review (twice-weekly) and the Kitsap Sun (a daily that also produces the weekly, Bainbridge Islander). A sample of local blogs that typically report on events and happenings on Bainbridge Island include the Bainbridge Bulletin and the Voice of Bainbridge. Its crime rate is also significantly below the national average, ranking as among the lowest in the Seattle metropolitan area. Bainbridge Island was formed during the last ice age — 13,000 to 15,000 years ago — when the 3000-foot thick Vashon Glacier scraped out the Puget Sound and Hood Canal basins. Bainbridge Island is located within the Central Puget Sound Basin, east of the Kitsap Peninsula and west of the City of Seattle. The Island is approximately five miles (8 km) wide and ten miles (16 km) long, encompassing nearly 17,778 acres, or 28 square miles (73 km²), and is one of the larger islands in Puget Sound. The island is quite hilly and is known for its popular 'Chilly Hilly' bicycle ride held every year in February. This ride has been the unofficial start to the bicycling season in the Pacific Northwest since 1992. Bainbridge Island is connected to the Kitsap Peninsula by a bridge carrying SR 305 over Agate Passage. The only other public way off the island is by Washington State Ferries service from Winslow in Eagle Harbor to Coleman Dock in Seattle. The boat, as it is commonly known, takes about 35 minutes to cross Puget Sound. View the Bainbridge Island Webcam
