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.
