Explore Vashon Island, Washington, in an RVshare RV Rental

Vashon Island was established as a city during the late 1700s when it was named after Captain James Vashon, a friend of the explorer Captain George Vancouver. The location of the island on South Puget Sound to its neighbor, Maury Island, made it a profitable hunting ground for early settlers. Early on, timber was the city's main source of commerce, but with the leveling of so many trees, the island was unable to sustain the demand over time, and farming became the main industry. In 1916, local landowners built an earth bridge (isthmus) between Vashon and Maury Islands.

The small island currently has over 10,000 residents and maintains a strong connection to farming. There are several small farms in operation that provide locals with eggs, milk, and organic produce. Visitors to Vashon Island enjoy the historic buildings that make up the city's center along with the natural areas that serve as estuaries and protected habitats for rare wildlife. Savory restaurants, such as Bramble House and Snapdragon, draw in travelers from around the country. The island also has several wineries, breweries, and cideries for sampling at places like Palouse Winery, Vashon Winery, Camp Colvos Brewing, and Dragon's Head Cider. For something a little different, you can attend the Vashon Sheepdog Classic that occurs once a year. The event takes place at Misty Isle Farms with local merchandise and food vendors.
