    Loved driving through the park enjoying different views and lots of photo ops. Visited on a beautiful summer weekday and we were fortunate there were very few people.

    Don't miss this -- easy drive to top (lots of switchbacks); saw many people hiking or biking to top. Beautiful views all around. It's a great sunset spot!

    Great views of Anacortes. It was easy to get to and stunning in the early morning light. We want to come back!

    Loved going there. Day was overcast and still it was beautiful. Can only imagine what it is on a sunny day. Make sure you take the trail going to Bowman Bay - an easy 1.5-2 miles each way (it was hard to keep track...), it is absolutely beautiful.

    This is an experience that shouldn't be missed! It was amazing to be right next to a wolf (many of them in fact) and to look into their eyes and really see just how majestic they are. A lot of care, concern and compassion are shown to these wolves (and all the rescue animals at this facility) by their care takers and it shows. It is unfortunate that these animals are where they are but they are not being exploited and they are being very well cared for. The love that each handler has for them totally comes across. My husband and I have some great photos of us and Max (one of the wolves who likes to take photos) and I shared them with friends and family who all said "Whoa!!!" We have one where he is yawning so he looks super fierce but he's a big softie (but he's still a wolf so not too soft ;>) Absolutely do this experience. It is worth every penny and then some. All the money spent goes right back into taking care of these animals and Ashley and her crew do more than an amazing job at providing them with the best life possible.

    Great farmers market with about 50 vendors and easy parking near by - free street parking for 2 hours even at 11 am. Bathrooms with flush toilets located next to live musicians. Chairs and tables near the musicians.

    Fresh vegetables, fruit (berries), fresh Skyr yogurt, coffee, two wineries, scones, made fresh crumpets, ice cream, meat, seafood, cookies, caramel popcorn, hazelnuts, and food trucks (Phillipino, Mexican, pizza), and crafts including wooden cutting boards and boxes, jewelry, all natural creams, soaps, lotions, salves, and bug spray and gorgeous fresh flower bouquets.

    I took my time sampling, having a snack (hot crumpet with lemon curd), talking to vendors, looking at the dogs and was there for 1.5 hours.
    You could do it much faster if you wanted to make a quick stop. It is open Saturday 9 am - 2 pm.

    There are many trail entrances to the area, but finding the parking lot for the first time was a bit of a challenge. The trails are well marked, however, and every time I go I find a different trail to explore. Some trails seem to be favorites for cyclists, but everyone I have ever met on the trails has been friendly and helpful.

    loved visiting the island but the constant requests to turn off your car alarm that was going off seems like an opportunity lost on those running the Ferries. Communication to riders was less than ideal, especially for conditions that were not on time . expect parents who let their young kids run wild. the scenery is absolutely gorgeous

    The rooms are wonderful, stayed on the back side and so had a view of the bay, but also the rv park. On coming into the hotel they do a temperature check and have all the covid protections. Had drinks in the bar, no bar seating but have tables in the area. Also had dinner fish and chips and prime rib... both were very good.

    Nice park with some green space, things to do, a nice trail, and good restaurants. I did not have a boat so I don't know what the marina facilities as such are like. One complaint is that the restrooms have to have a code to get into so if you are not a marina customer you are out of luck.

    Visited before COVID, found this in draft mode. Beautiful island, saw deer and other wildlife. The ferry is slow and can be a wait.

    The water play features and the playground was a really fun place for a range of ages. The park was clean and comfortable to spend time at.

    I drove around looking for a shady spot to park briefly in town, and lucked upon this hand built rock memorial amphitheater. The stonework inspired me to look up more information about his hand crafted structure online. Quiet rest spot.

    We just happened to find out about this community theater while planning our trip and called ahead to reserve seats (good thing we did because it was sold out!). They were putting on “Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike.” It was hilarious and the acting was really good! We will definitely check out local theater groups more often on our future trips.
