Chambers & Downtown Associations
BIDA provides public support in many ways: by building community through a vibrant downtown; facilitating local involvement in downtown interests; marketing the destination to visitors and locals; and promoting the aesthetic design and economic vitality of the downtown corridor. We partner with local businesses in marketing special offers and events throughout the year.
A beautiful ferry ride across the Puget Sound transports you to Bainbridge Island, a 27-square-mile island that holds a rich history, a unique combination of sophistication and simplicity, breathtaking beauty, and one-of-a-kind experiences.
A short walk from the ferry is our charming Downtown district, one of 13 Nationally Accredited Washington State Historic Main Streets. Stroll into downtown and enjoy a diverse selection of locally-owned shops and restaurants offering something for everyone, as well as wonderful experiences reflective of our region, from wine tasting to adventures on the water such as diving and kayaking.
