Hop a ferry to the San Juan Islands of Washington State and feel yourself unwind. Watch for bald eagles and listen for the spouts of orca or humpback whales. You won’t find fast food, stoplights or jet skis, you will find seed-to-table dining and enclaves of creative vitality, in what Lonely Planet magazine calls the “gourmet archipelago.” Try kayaking past a sea lion haul-out and hiking or driving up Mt. Constitution for a panoramic view of distant snow-capped peaks and scattered islands below. Enjoy world-class biking and hiking, sweeping sea and sky vistas and lingering summer sunsets. With half the rainfall of Seattle and twice as much sunshine, the Islands are a year-round destination where temperatures average in the 70s in summer and 40s in winter. Only a 45-minute plane ride from Seattle or an hour ferry ride from the mainland, we say that getting here is half the fun!
