Shopping, Restaurants, Farm Stands, Events:

Easily accessible by the Washington State Ferries and  Water Taxi, we are just a short trip from downtown Seattle, West Seattle, Tacoma, and the Olympic Peninsula. We describe ourselves as the "Heart of the Sound."


Escape from the city to find peace and quiet in nature or a buzzing little town full of new sites and bites to try. Charming shops populate Vashon’s town, and the Island’s restaurants offer everything from fast food to fine cuisine. Local restaurants and coffee houses often feature local, regional and national talent on weekends and holidays.


Twice-a-year studio tours showcase a vibrant arts community. “First Friday” is a monthly event featuring the latest exhibits in island galleries, complete with refreshments and live music in many locales. Theater, dance, and music all find multiple outlets on Vashon. Vashon Center for the Arts is one of the largest and most comprehensive community art centers in the Pacific Northwest, and celebrates Vashon’s rich tradition of fine and performing arts. The Open Space For Arts & Community offers a range of arts both on and off the stage.

Vashon Events:

Local merchants organize events throughout the year, including Halloween trick-or-treating, Holiday Open House in December, Dog Day sales in August, and much more! Perhaps it’s the comforting sense of being nestled in the midst of Puget Sound, or the views of mountains at every corner, the friendly people, the peace and quiet, or the strong sense of community that makes Vashon Island like no other home.
