Sparkling blue waters, deep green forests ... Welcome to the San Juan Islands! Just a scenic ferry ride or a short flight from the northwest Washington mainland lies a paradise for the adventurous in spirit, whether you yearn for the slow pace of island time or the excitement of new experiences.
Winter in the San Juans
The welcome mat is out year-round in the charming San Juan Islands. There’s a chill in the air but the isles are inviting, with chimney smoke rising, fog in the valley, or perhaps even a dusting of snow. Stroll through villages and towns on Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Island, all decked out in holiday lights. Browse through bookstores, boutiques, galleries and museums. Take a walk on a quiet beach, or hike through forests of green. Enjoy delicious comfort foods and gourmet delicacies from a range of island restaurants.
Relax. Retreat. Rejuvenate in the San Juan Islands.
