Historic Friday Harbor is a beautiful seaport with various activities to keep you busy for a day or a week. All of these activities are located within a square mile and include small, water-view cafes, museums, shops, and loads more! Below are three places you need to visit when you are in Friday Harbor.
You can buy jewelry, artwork, books, locally created women’s apparel, presents, and a variety of other items in Friday Harbor’s many businesses, which range from boutiques and bookstores to galleries and gift shops. From the shore up to Argyle Street, Spring Street serves as the primary thoroughfare for retail.
The Brickworks, which was renovated in 2013 and took its name from its previous historical function, is now Friday Harbor’s cultural hub. It has a sizable hall and an outdoor plaza for events like concerts and community get-togethers.
The Whale Museum
Since 1979, The Whale Museum, housed in an Odd Fellows Hall built in 1892, has supported the conservation of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem via instruction and study. You may view breathtaking films of orcas playing while browsing the museum’s gift store. Visit the Gallery of Whales upstairs to find out how to help the more than 80 Southern Resident orca whales who live in these Northwest waters.
It’s a good idea to have a Friday Harbor vacation rental where you may rest your head at the end of the day while you are organizing your one-of-a-kind vacation. To meet your unique and personal needs, San Juan PM provides a range of opulent vacation rentals throughout the San Juan Islands.
