Vashon-Maury.com provides information, updates, and general helpful articles and tips for Vashon Island residents and visitors.
Our news section began as a resource for locals to share out what they know as soon as they do to provide helpful information that other news sources may not be able to get to as quickly. As a result, we invite any member resident, or friend of Vashon Islanders to share. Whether it be something news worthy you know more about what is going on than other news publications, or if you have advice, tips, or even reviews of local businesses, services, or restaurants.
