Vashon, WA, United States for Getaway

Eat at May Kitchen + Bar, Pure Organic Cafe, Zamorana, Zombiez Burgers and The Hardware Store. Don’t miss Snapdragon for giant pastries and vegetarian dishes. Vashon Baking Co for more amazing pastries and great coffee. Another favorite stop is Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie. And ice cream at Glass Bottle Creamery!

Depending on weather rent kayaks from Vashon Watersports, paddle boards from Fat Cat Paddleboard, Bikes from Spider Sports, check out one of the many hikes on the island or stroll the beach and visit the Point Robinson Lighthouse.

If it’s a classic Seattle day (i.e. wet and chilly), go tasting room hopping! There are at least seven different tasting rooms on the island – wine, spirits, cider, beer – you’ll be warmed up in no time.

Definitely hit up the Farmers Market in the spring/summer for great locally-made and only found on island goods.

Insider Tip

First Fridays is Vashon Art Walk and at 11pm May Kitchen closes and turns into an epic dance party. It’s not to be missed!

    Upvote times 100! The Lodges at Vashon are a perfect modern retreat. We went for a morning bicycle ride grabbing the peacefulness of Puget Sound and grabbed some fresh local fruit and veggies at the farmer’s market next to the lodges. Dinner at May was incredibly tasty! I’m a cider fan and tasting at the local cideries on Vashon made this trip even more lovely.

Have you done this? What can you add to this jrrny?
