The charming small town of Langley, Washington, is an undiscovered gem providing visitors with a quirky and quintessential Northwest island experience.
Located on Whitbey Island, the town is less than a mile/kilometer square. It takes a little more than an hour to reach from Seattle, including a ferry ride.
A tidy burg with historic character, it's set on bluffs overlooking Saratoga Passage, where you can spot gray whales in March, April and May. From October through January, orcas take their turn in the passage, chasing the chum salmon runs.
Visitors also can rent bikes, go kayaking or scuba diving, or sample wine at the local wineries. The town has a friendly, artisan spirit and boasts lots of antiques shops, art galleries and eateries. Locals enthusiastically welcome visitors.
