Bainbridge Island Magazine

Bainbridge Island magazine was published in print from 2012 through 2020, and was the area’s definitive city periodical.

The intent was to inform, entertain and engage readers in an effort to foster enthusiasm for our unique city and highlight the many wonderful stories there are to tell about the island.

The magazine was a beautiful, glossy, coffee-table quality magazine that you will be proud to show your family and visitors at your home or business.

From captivating stories on island organizations, to profiles of intriguing people, to listings of restaurants and events—and much more—Bainbridge Island tells the story of our home.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the print magazine was discontinued.
