Friday Harbor, San Juan Island — 8 nights

The tiny town of Friday Harbor is the largest village on the San Juan Islands, and it fits within just 2.6 km (1 sq mi) of space.
Change things up with these side-trips from Friday Harbor: Olga (Moran State Park & Buck Bay Shellfish Farm) and Eastsound (Sucia Island State Park & Orcas Island Pottery). The adventure continues: stroll through Lime Kiln Point State Park, make a trip to English Camp, experience rural life at Pelindaba Lavender Farm, and examine the collection at The Whale Museum.

San Juan Islands travel guide

4.6
Dolphin & Whale Watching · State Parks · Landmarks
Experience island living Pacific Northwest-style by visiting the San Juan Islands. Of the 176 named islands here, Lopez, Orcas, and San Juan are the three that cater to visitors. Orca whales roam the waters from April to September, and rolling farmland inland gives way to small coastal towns filled with art galleries and boutiques. The islands' small mountains offer vistas over the water to the snow-capped peaks of the Olympic mountain range. The island region offers prime sea kayaking, biking tours, birding, and saltwater fishing. The populated isles attract a lot of summer tourism but remain quiet the remainder of the year.
