Whidbey Island is about two hour drive from the city of Seattle. It is a nice place to hide when you are feeling tired of the hassle-buzzle of the big city! There are so many things to see in Whidbey Island. You can go walk across its famous Deception Pass, go down the water and just relax on the beach, gather wood drifts on the ocean shore, or just sit down at the beach and read a book! You can also take a boat and go around the island!
Going to Whidbey Island can also be done by a ferry boat ride. I like taking the ferry instead of driving because I can relax and enjoy the ride and the view! It is difinitely an experience because you can actually bring your car to the ferry and you can use your car later on to drive around the island!
Are you afraid of height? Then this is not for you! The Deception Pass Bridge is so high that it is really scarry to walk across the bridge! Down below is the deep cold water of Washington!
If you are looking for a very scenic spot to view the whole pass, then walk across the bridge to get a view of the whole horizon - see the water down below with boats passing, the mountains on the side and the beach and ocean shore down on the left side of the bridge. It is a beautiful scenic view of Whidbey Island.
We drove around the island and ended up in Coolville. The drive was spectacular what with the view of the island! There is so much to view in the island especially the view of the ocean and the mountains at the same time. I love the sunset in Coolville.%
- Pros:A nice getaway from the city of Seattle
- Cons:Not enough long weekends to go to Whidbey Island!
- In a nutshell:I love Whidbey Island!
We went down the bridge- walk down the hill, walked on rocks to get down to the ocean shore. There are nice beaches... more travel advice
