Whidbey Island and
Camano Island
Tourism Information

Whidbey Island and Camano Island are two islands located in the middle of the north end of Puget Sound. Both are an easy drive north from Seattle. These rural islands are a great antidote for big city pressures.  Come to our islands for wide-open beaches, scenic vistas, outdoor adventures, great art, fine dining, and more.  Stay overnight in our hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts and more and greet a new day rested and restored.

Our small-town holiday events bring a warmth to the season's chill.
 

The down-to-earth nature of our tree lightings, our carolers, our visits from Santa make for a refreshing change from the big-city.  Come join in our holiday celebrations!
