Bainbridge makes top-10 list of 'dreamy' U.S. islands
Bainbridge Island is a dreamy place to live.
Or so says Moira McGarvey, founder of a retirement planning website called GangsAway!
"On our retirement planning website, GangsAway!, we took a look at some of our data and came up with 10 Great Island Retirement Location alternatives that are adjacent to the US mainland. They are not all tropical but then again, not everyone wants tropical. Have a look at our Top 10 mainland islands," McGarvey wrote.
"I'll warn you, they're not cheap but maybe it will give you some food for thought and help you channel your inner Gilligan," she added.
Bainbridge appeared as the eighth island on the list. Along with Vashon Island, it was one of two Washington state islands mentioned.
Topping the list was Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
The rest of the list:
Key Largo, Florida;
Duck, North Carolina;
Shelter Island, New York;
Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts;
Bainbridge Island, Washington;
Avalon, Catalina Island, California; and
Vashon Island, Washington.
