Located about 30 miles north of Seattle, Whidbey is the largest of nine islands that make up Island County, Washington. It is the longest of Washington’s islands at approximately 35 miles long and 12 miles at the widest point, about 1.5 miles at the narrowest.
There are six main communities on the island, each unique in its own way. Oak Harbor on the north end is the largest and is home to the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. The southern most town of Clinton is our connection to the mainland to the east. In-between is some of the most beautiful landscape and lush scenery you can find.
There is much to do here and certainly something for everyone. Whidbey Island culture is rich in the arts, outdoor activities, and family oriented events. You’ll find more suggestions and links in the Activities section.
Plan to attend some of the many festivals and activities held throughout the year like Djangofest Northwest, Mystery Weekend, and Choochokam Arts Festival to name a few. Check the Events section for more information and helpful links.
Each of the accommodations has a kitchen for the convenience of preparing your own meals. If you are looking for dining out options, the Dining section offers some suggestions and links to help you satisfy those cravings.
We’re sure you’ll make lots of wonderful island memories to take home with you.
