Arts and Outdoor Weekend Getaway in the San Juan Islands
It may be a long way from Puerto Rico, but Washington State's version of San Juan has its own charms (minus the tropical temperatures). Comprising 172 islands off Washington State's northwest boundary, San Juan County offers locavore restaurants, plentiful indoor and outdoor activities, and charming hotels in one incredible escape. The Washington State Ferry system delivers travelers to two shining stars in the inky waters: the horseshoe-shaped Orcas Island, and the undulating San Juan Island. Head here to relax and rejuvenate during a weekend getaway, where you'll browse pottery galleries, walk through an outdoor art collection, visit a whale museum, encounter spectacular nature and eat fine island food. Who says you need 90-degree days and Caribbean water to experience true rejuvenation? – By Lora Shinn
