Orcas Island, WA

Why: Birds and deer are everywhere, the eagles are forever overhead and whales leap out of the water. It’s a quiet area with miles of shoreline and beaches. Plus, the weather is nice year round.



To do: Definitely go on whale watching expeditions, enjoy the water boating or sailing, or gorge yourself on delicious Pacific Ocean seafood. Action enthusiasts have the opportunity to kayak, rent mopeds and see the island faster, or slow it down in yoga classes.



Stay: Vacation rentals, pet-friendly B&Bs and suites as well as cabins and cottages are everywhere on Orcas Islands. Rosario Resort is close to outdoor recreation, like biking and whale watching.
