Friday Harbor is a small town and historic seaport with a fascinating history. There are many shops for great shopping, plus several very good cafes and restaurants to choose from. A walk around town is a pleasure, everyone is friendly and helpful. Visit the whale museum and the historical museum, plus take the walking tour of the town, we take great pride in our continuing preservation efforts of many of the original buildings. San juan island is the best area to actually see orca whales in the wild easily during the summer months. Fall and spring it is a birders paradise with many species passing through en route to their winter home or summer breeding grounds. Many birds reside here in the winter, most beautiful are the trumpeter swans and the great blue heron, plus the largest population of bald eagles outside of alaska, reside in the san juan islands. We have 3 national parks on our small beautiful island so there are a lot of opportunities for hiking on the well marked trails.
