Featured Experience

Small-town Holiday Fun in the San Juan Islands

Local traditions make the season bright with tree festivals, artisan faires, an old-fashioned Christmas market and more

Islanders celebrate their most cherished holiday traditions, from watching a sunset torchlight parade on Lopez and a memorable tree lighting in Friday Harbor, to chatting with Orcas Island artists over handmade gifts and a cup of hot cider.

Dining in the Islands

Fine dining in the San Juan Islands means tasty food—often locally produced—served in a laid-back atmosphere (forget the jacket and tie). Many of the islands’ restaurants take advantage of the bounty from local growers. Consider adding a local wine, beer, cider or spirit to your meal in these establishments—labels from San Juan Vineyards, Orcas Island Winery and Lopez Island Vineyards & Winery are featured on many of their wine lists.
