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.
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!
