Friday Harbor

4.3
Dolphin & Whale Watching · State Parks · Specialty Museums
The tiny town of Friday Harbor is the largest village on the San Juan Islands, and it fits within just 2.6 km (1 sq mi) of space. This walkable seaport of just under 3,000 people sits on a hill overlooking the harbor and is proud to support local shops and eateries--no fast-food chains here. Art is an integral part of the community, from tile mosaics adorning local businesses to art galleries to performing arts. Ferries and seaplanes are the only way to travel to and from the town. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named the port city one of its Dozen Distinctive Destinations in 2008. With the Inspirock custom trip planner, Friday Harbor and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
