In Kansas, we love fast cars and slow-cooked brisket. We touch the sky but stay grounded in the things that matter most. We live out loud and embrace the solace of silence. We conquer rocks and celebrate on the rocks. We ride like the wind and live for the water.
The Kansas experience is a salute to the real. To the rowdy. To the wide-eyed wanderers. To the dreamers.

With a temperate marine climate unique in the Pacific Northwest.
San Juan County has more than 400 miles of shoreline punctuated by rocks, bluffs, and beaches. Life in the “rain shadow” of the Olympic Mountains means an average of 247 days with sunshine annually and about half the rainfall of the Seattle area.
San Juan County is considered an “Arts Hot Spot” by the Washington State Arts Commission and became the first in the country to be designated a voluntary “Leave No Trace” area. Friday Harbor on San Juan Island was named a Destination of Distinction by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Experience Washington’s coastal wildlife and scenery from a spectacular sea-level perspective. World-class landscapes and a calm inland sea make the San Juans a prime kayaking spot for adventure-seekers. Paddle your own kayak or set out with one of the many knowledgeable kayaking outfitters on San Juan, Orcas, or Lopez Island for three-hour to three-day tours.
