San Juan Island

(4.2/5 based on 10,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, museums, sightseeing
An archipelago between the U.S. and Canada, the San Juan Islands feature low hills and rough coastline that are sparsely populated, giving the islands a mysterious appearance. The region sits along the Pacific flyway, so bird-watching is popular with travelers here, with more than 300 species to be spotted. Whale watching draws more wildlife enthusiasts--you can sight the animals from the ferry that transports you to the islands or sign up for a dedicated tour seeking out the mammals. All transport to the island is by water or air; most customers are tourists. About 8,000 residents call the islands home. Put San Juan Island at the heart of your travel plans by using our United States vacation route planner.
