Most of the residents in Vashon Island commute to Seattle and Tacoma. Thus, this 206 area is mostly a suburban community. There are some small farms in the island that provide produce, milk and eggs. Furthermore the island has a strawberry festival every July. It is exactly for these tranquil qualities why so many lawyers decide to make Vashon Island their home.

Some interesting places in Vashon Island include a Russian Orthodox Monastery, and a famous bicycle stuck in a tree. This bicycle was placed in the tree three decades ago, and so the tree has grown around the bicycle and looks quite interesting.
