Vashon conjures up idyllic images like eating ice cream, picking blackberrries from bushes alongside the country roads and poking around the small galleries and funky shops of this quaint little island. A bit larger than Manhattan, Vashon is about five miles south of Seattle in the Puget Sound. Accessible by ferry, bring your bike or rent one once you arrive on the island. With little to do other than bike, kayak, hike and enjoy this beautifully rural spot, this is the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon.
