A trip to this place should be on your summer bucket list

Is it possible to be in a bad mood at a place called Pleasant Beach?

We didn't think so. Especially once you hear all the fun stuff there is to do there.

Hop on the Bainbridge ferry from downtown Seattle and in about half an hour, you'll be out of the city and in a summer paradise known as Pleasant Beach Village. Restaurants, a wine bar, adorable shops, and boutique inn (with a beautiful outdoor swimming pool) will make you feel light years away from the grind of city life.

Have an anniversary coming up? Hit up the Manor House Restaurant for drinks and dinner and stay the night at The Inn at Pleasant Beach for a romantic getaway for two. Thinking more along the lines of a family trip? A day at the pool, topped off with burgers and frozen yogurt will get cheers from every member of the family (and most likely guarantees a good night's sleep at The Inn). Wake up the next morning for a stroll on the beach, before catching the ferry back home.

Explore Pleasant Beach Village this summer and get a taste of island life, without the long drives or cramped airline seats.
