San Juan Island
san juan island.
Enjoy the seductive vistas, miles of saltwater shore and even a few orca sightings.
Exploring the San Juan Islands should be at the top of everyone’s bucket list. Dramatic and breathtaking, the San Juans were listed as No. 2 in the “41 Places To Go in 2011” by The New York Times.
Friday Harbor, where the ferry lands, is a walker’s town. With art galleries, shops, museums and restaurants, there’s plenty to see. B&Bs and other lodgings make it easy to spend a night or two. To get around the island (if you didn’t bring a car or bike), you can either take public transportation or rent a scooter or bike.
Roche Harbor has a bay full of yachts as well as the historic Hotel de Haro, which dates to 1886. After a delicious meal, tour the 19-acre San Juan Islands Museum of Art and Sculpture Park.
On the west side of the island, visit Lime Kiln Point State Park, a 36-acre park where you can view spectacular sunsets and catch a glimpse of the orcas that summer in Haro Straight. Tours of the lighthouse are offered on Saturdays throughout the summer.
