Seaside beauty that helps you breathe deep

Set in the San Juan Island archipelago that stretches across the Salish Sea, north and west of Seattle, Friday Harbor is a seaport with an easy charm and easy access to the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest. Hikes, boat rides, and whale watching excursions provide excitement and exercise for nature lovers of all ages, and a family-friendly vibe helps parents keep kids entertained while they enjoy fine foods, wines, and exquisite views. Animal sightings might make your heart race, but the slow pace of island life will bring you back to relaxation station.

Things to do

Whales and wineries, Friday Harbor has it all

Downtown Friday Harbor is home to the town's Whale Museum, which will expand your love of the sea and encourage you to protect its ecosystems with educational exhibits and marine naturalist trainings, offered in spring and summer. And speaking of summer, that's when kids are invited to sleepover at the museum and get some marine training of their own _ in between crafts projects and giggles, that is. While the kids are away, the grown-ups can check out the San Juan Vineyard, set on 30 picturesque acres backed by evergreens.

Activities

Follow a guide or your own sense of adventure

A first-time visitor can become a wilderness explorer in Friday Harbor. The town's residential streets cover only a couple of square miles, so your Friday Harbor vacation rental will always be close to hiking trails. Drive 15 minutes to Young Hill for a special treat, with views of the San Juan Islands archipelago. Vacationers are also impressed by the whale watching tours that depart from the harbor and on which expert naturalists help you spot more than orcas and humpbacks. Porpoises, otters, and seabirds will delight the whole family.

Weather

Bring your long layers and revel in long summer days

Friday Harbor gets less rainfall than some other parts of Washington State, thanks to protection from the neighboring Olympic Mountains. Summertime highs hang out in the 70s, and winter lows are in the high 30s. Snow is rare, but any local will tell you to come prepared with layers, snow or no. Summer is the most popular season, which means slightly bigger crowds, but don't let that discourage you from a Friday Harbor vacation rental. At such a high latitude, summer days are much longer. You'll have extra daylight hours to pack in the fun.

Natural features

Bet you never thought you'd help a red fox through rehab

San Juan, the island home of your Friday Harbor vacation rental, has a surprising variety of wildlife _ whales and otters, of course, but also red foxes, blacktail deer, bats, and butterflies. A scenic drive south will take you to San Juan Island National Historic Park, where you can see many of these creatures. For nature lovers who want to help, the Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center welcomes volunteers. Founded in 1982, the center has cared for everything from hummingbirds to seals before releasing them back into the wild.
