Water world: adventures at seaÉ and a few on land

Just a day in your Orcas Island vacation rental is enough time to make you wonder 1 thing: how can 1 little island pack so much natural beauty? Part of the San Juan Islands chain, Orcas Island sits in the Salish Sea, off the northwest coast of Washington State. Whether you spend your day hiking through forests, kayaking around the surrounding waters, or just soaking up mountain views, the island provides a breathtaking landscape that's ripe for exploring. The island is also home to charming villages, many of which offer their own quaint attractions.

Things to do

Mountains to museums _ attractions that run the gamut!

Adventures abound at Morgan State Park, home to 40 miles of hiking trails and (when the weather's right) lakes for swimming. Reach new heights by foot, car, or bike, when you climb the summit of Mount Constitution. While your Orcas Island vacation rental provides a respite from the outdoors, the village of Eastsound offers such indoor attractions as the Orcas Island Historical Museum and the family-friendly Funhouse Commons, a hands-on museum with everything from a recording studio to a climbing wall. Stock up on fresh produce at the village's farmers' market, and discover local talent in cozy galleries.

Activities

Getting outdoorsy: channeling your inner thrill-seeker

No matter where you turn on Orcas Island, eventually, you're bound to hit a body of water. Take advantage of the watery landscape and soak up the majestic scenery by chartering a sailboat or simply setting out in a kayak or canoe. Want to see regional wildlife in their natural habitat? Take one of the island's popular whale watching tours, or come face-to-face with smaller forms of aquatic life while fishing. If you're not much of seafarer, you'll find plenty of activities on land, from horseback riding excursions to coastal biking and hiking trails.

Weather

Rain, rain _ it just might go away when you least expect it

While packing for your Orcas Island vacation rental, keep that umbrella in mind. But while most rain falls from November through January, the island doesn't get as wet as most areas of the Pacific Northwest, with July being the driest month. Winter conditions are surprisingly mild, with daytime highs hovering in the high 40s. Summer brings sunny skies and temps in the low 70s, making outdoor activities particularly enticing. Pack plenty of layers for a spring or fall visit when daytime temperatures are in the 50s, before evenings dip into the mid-40s.

Natural features

The Emerald Isle pops with color and drips with waterways

Various bodies of water, including numerous straights, bays, and sounds, surround the horseshoe-shaped Orcas Island. Work your way inland to such places as Moran State Park and you'll discover an array of sparkling lakes and dramatic waterfalls. Measuring 2,409 feet, Mount Constitution is the highest point in the San Juan Islands and, on a clear day, offers views from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Mount Rainier. Long for the chance to see wild animals in their natural habitat? Wildlife tours offer glimpses of such majestic creatures as whales, porpoise, bald eagles, and elephant seals.
