The Island Getaway Everyone In Washington Needs To Take This Winter

The words “winter island getaway” mean something a little different in Washington. We might not have Maui or Key West, but we do have the gorgeous Whidbey and San Juan Islands—and what they lack in high temperatures, they make up for in scenery. But if you’re looking for a quiet escape in a totally peaceful setting this winter, head to Vashon Island and stay at The Lodges.

Vashon Island is accessible via a short ferry ride from West Seattle. And if you can’t make it to Vashon, perhaps a trip to the San Juan Islands is in order.
