Friday Harbor, in far northwest Washington State’s San Juan Islands, is a great place to escape. It’s a historic community on San Juan Island. This archipelago’s largest island is home to it. The only way to reach the town or its surroundings is by seaplane or boat.
As soon as the ferry arrives, the charming Friday Harbor downtown district welcomes them. You can find many shops and restaurants here, branching off Spring Street. This is a wonderful place to stroll and window shop during busy tourist season.
Lime Kiln State Park (one of Washington’s finest state parks) is located on the west coast of the island. It is about a fifteen-minute drive from ferry terminal. This park covers 43 acres and is known as Whale Watch Park.
San Juan Island saw unique military history in the middle of 1800s. San Juan Island was not only left with an unclear territory, but the 49th parallel was set by the 1846 Treaty of Oregon.
The Whale Museum is located right near downtown. This museum aims to educate people about whales, the Salish Sea environment, and other marine life. With a variety easy-to-read exhibits, displays and displays, they accomplish this.
Just a quarter mile from the ferry terminal is the San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA), which can be found on Spring Street. It’s known for rotating exhibitions that feature a wide range artwork.
