You’re one lucky amigo if your plans include a vacation in Washington State – especially if that trip includes a stop in Island County and the San Juan Islands. This particular route is one thousands of visitors take each year to get a sense of “taste and place ” of what Island Life is like in Washington State. As reference, Island County is located in Washington State, about 2 hours from Seattle. Its name reflects the fact that it is composed entirely of islands. It contains two large islands, Whidbey and Camano, and seven smaller islands.

Travel writer Linda Kissam ‘Food, Wine & Shopping Diva’ discusses her Island County adventures. Chef Vincent Nattress talks about Orchard Kitchen, a teaching kitchen and dining room on the five-acre organic farm he runs with his wife Tyla, in Langley. Scott Hale of Brand New Stay discusses Island Inn at 123 West in Friday Harbor, and the LEANTO® Glamping Sites at Moran State Park on Orcas Island.
