Spring is a great time for a family getaway!

Make a break for it in the San Juans!


March 1 through April 30, 2019

With half the rainfall of the Seattle area, the islands are a spectacular springtime destination. There's plenty to do as the tulips bloom and the days get longer. Go whale watching or kayaking, adventuring at the beach, or hit the trails for mountain biking. Try a zip-line tour, visit an alpaca farm, tour art galleries, browse bookstores and more. There are great family restaurants and many lodgings that love to host children of all ages.

See specials below - and stay tuned as we add more!
