4) Bainbridge Island

Bainbridge Island was once named by CNN/Money as the second-best place to live in the country. Of course, such good living comes at a price and the cost of living is 60 percent above the national average. Residents 65 and older make up 16.4 percent of the population. The core downtown area is Winslow, as it has most of the shops and restaurants. At the south end, Lynwood Center has several restaurants. A couple other spots have restaurants, grocery, and commercial shops. The Bainbridge Island Senior Center has no minimum age to join and the annual fee is $12. There are classes in photography, knitting, writing, a variety of card and other games, technology tutoring, yoga, dancing, and table tennis. Additionally, there are meal programs and medical assistance partnerships.
