Tree lightings, artisan fairs and a new Island Nutcracker brings good cheer to the San Juan Holiday Season

In the San Juans, the holidays are a perfect time to get away from crowded parking lots and cookie-cutter chain stores. Enjoy a winter event or take a walk on a stormy beach, cozy up to glass of local wine by the fire, or get a rejuvenating massage.

As a Mecca for artists, local galleries on San Juan, Orcas, and Lopez Islands present an array of island-made jewelry, pottery, paintings, prints and sculpture.
