The tiny town of Friday Harbor is the largest village on the San Juan Islands, and it fits within just 2.6 km (1 sq mi) of space. This walkable seaport of just under 3,000 people sits on a hill overlooking the harbor and is proud to support local shops and eateries--no fast-food chains here. Art is an integral part of the community, from tile mosaics adorning local businesses to art galleries to performing arts. Ferries and seaplanes are the only way to travel to and from the town. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named the port city one of its Dozen Distinctive Destinations in 2008.

Shopping in Friday Harbor
As a popular summer escape for residents of the Seattle area and tourists from further afield, Friday Harbor does not lack for a selection of accommodation. Most places sit in the historical downtown area. Here you'll find charming inns and bed and breakfasts, upmarket suites and spas, and more basic motels. A couple of guesthouses sit farther away from downtown. These offer more privacy, but you'll probably want to have a car if you choose stay at one. If you plan to arrive in summer, book your stay as far ahead as possible.
