Great outdoors, orcas, whales and romantic vacations Washington for weekend getaways and longer trips.

Here are some tips for romantic San Juan Island getaway from Maggie. Maggie was born and raised there in the Northwest. Her first trip to the Island was in 1967 and she has been in love with it ever since -- the landscape, the sights and smells, and yes, even the weather.

If you haven’t been on a San Juan Island getaway (or maybe, even if you have), a lovely romantic trip awaits. The Island is naturally exotic and a bit mysterious for the simple fact that it is an island, an out of the way place one has to travel to with intent. It’s just not a place you end up in by accident. Much like romance, it is a deliberate pursuit and one that bestows enormous rewards for the effort.

The San Juan Island getaway begins by boat or plane, each option being rather unique in its own right. Visitors traveling to the Island on the Washington State Ferry system can envelop themselves in their own world, apart from the rest, sequestered indoors on cushioned seats, or opt for outdoor benches from which to watch the greenery glide by. And, even if you find air travel commonplace, a flight to the romantic vacations Washington Island is a pleasure unto itself on a small, cozy plane. Your view over the picturesque northwest landscape prepares you for what lies ahead.

Once you arrive, the Island offers romance at every turn. What appeals to one may not appeal to another but there are plenty of romantic occasions. Dinner at The Place in downtown Friday Harbor overlooking the harbor is incomparable, especially followed by a night at the Friday Harbor House, just 2 blocks up the hill. Nothing says romance like that kind of indulgence. And if you prefer less traditional accommodations, I can almost guarantee your delight in a tent cabin at Lakedale Resort. Camping is now luxurious with pillow-top queen-size bed, cotton sheets, and a cordless lantern. Ahhhhh... it’s outdoor comfort at it’s absolute best.

San Juan Island is the heart of romance. All you have to do is show up!
