Bainbridge Island is a city in Kitsap County, Washington, United States, and is coextensive with the eponymous island in Puget Sound. The population was 23,025 at the 2010 census, making Bainbridge Island the second largest city in Kitsap County.In July 2005, CNN/Money and Money magazine named Bainbridge Island the second-best place to live in the United States.In August 2013, Bainbridge Island was recognized by Google with an eCity Award. This award recognizes the strongest online business community in each state.The local newspapers are the weekly Bainbridge Island Review and the Bainbridge Islander.HistoryIn 1792, English explorer Captain George Vancouver spent several days with his ship HMS Discovery anchored off Restoration Point at the southern end of Bainbridge Island while boat parties surveyed other parts of Puget Sound. Vancouver spent a day exploring Rich Passage, Port Orchard, and Sinclair Inlet. He failed to find Agate Passage and so his maps show Bainbridge Island as a peninsula. Vancouver named Restoration Point on May 29, the anniversary of the English Restoration, in honor of King Charles II.
