Gateway to Whidbey Island
As soon as you’re off the ferry, you’re in the community of Clinton. With shopping, farms to visit and restaurants in easy reach from the ferry, Clinton is an ideal stop for tourists and locals alike.
Depending on which way you drive, Clinton is either your first taste of Whidbey as you drive off the ferry, or that last morsel of a getaway before returning to the mainland.
The community straddles the highway, embracing you with restaurants and stores.
A bit further off the highway, you’ll find the serene rural landscape that signifies Whidbey island. Wineries, gardens, and farms are often open for visitors, giving you the opportunity to sample the freshness of Clinton’s rural nature.
The quiet roads call to cyclists, while beaches and boat ramps pull tourists back to the water that gives this island’s rural communities a distinct nautical accent.
The open roads through some of the highest hills on the island are a great drive, and an excuse to roll down the windows and just enjoy an exploratory drive.
Bed–and-breakfasts and seaside cottages make your lodging opportunities unique, personal and memorable.
