Friday Harbor on San Juan Island is a delightful sea port, rich in history and big on charm. Everything is within walking distance, from eclectic shops, museums, the beach, and the harbor -- meaning the vibe is slow and relaxing here.
There's so much more to do in Friday Harbor, from watching sunsets, beach combing, zip-lining, horseback riding, sailing, and even blackberry picking! History buffs will love the museums in town, particularly the Whale Museum, the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, and the San Juan Historical Museum.
Next, take a walk around the harbor, get an ice cream and people-watch on one of the numerous bench spots. Then, hit the beach, rent bikes, and explore the island or head down to Lime Kiln Point State Park to try your luck at spotting an Orca or Minke whale. If that doesn't fulfill your wildlife needs, climb aboard a cruise to see whales, seals, and more.
Elsewhere, hiking is great at Mount Young, where trekkers can soak in the incredible views. Wildlife along the nature trails includes deer, rabbits, wild turkey, and eagles. Budding photographers be sure to have your cameras ready!
For a something more leisurely, row boats and fish at Lakedale Resort or launch a kayak and plunge into the water for scuba diving at San Juan County Park and Small Pox Bay.
Plan your visit in late spring or summer to really enjoy the beauty of long days outside.

— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
