In addition to the above, think about parking your car at the Coupville ferry landing and walk on the Port Townsend Ferry to Port Townsend. Great Victorian town with a lively waterfront, great shops and Victorian homes. I believe all of downtown is on the National Historical Record.

On Whidbey I would add Ft. Casey and in Anacortes Washington Head Park which is at the end of Fidalgo Island past the Anacortes Ferry Landing. You can walk or drive the loop around the park.

Don't know how much time you have so here is the most important to see in order. Deception Pass (do not miss), Mt Erie ( you drive almost all the way up and the rest is a stroll not even a hike. Port Townsend can be a day itself.

One last piece of advice. When traveling anywhere on Hwy 20 absolutely drive the posted speed limit. This stretch is notorious for speed and radar traps.

Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip.

It's a pretty good sized island so the To-Do's depend on your interests. I always enjoy taking a picnic to Fort Casey. Interesting history and a great view of Puget Sound. The one 'must see' on the island is Deception Pass. Opposite end of the island, but don't miss it! Spectacular view of the fastest tidal current in Washington set against beautiful cliffs. Every guest I've taken there has loved it.

Lastly, just walking around the shops in Langley is enjoyable. It's a great town and island to just sit back, relax and enjoy a peaceful setting.

Stroll downtown Langley- lots of nice galleries, shops, etc. Very quaint. Visit local wineries - Whidbey Island Winery, Comforts of Whidbey, Spoiled Dog, Dancing Fish, Ott and Murphy is in downtown Langley... I am very fond of Whidbey Island Winery's wines. Visit Coupeville- grab a bite at Knead and Feed or fixings for a picnic from Bayleaf. Get out in nature and see the beautiful scenery- Double Bluff, Ebey's Prairie, Meerkerk Gardens. Don't miss Deception Pass State Park on the north end, which spans Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands... If you make it up there, continue onto Fidalgo and drive up Mt Erie for one of the best views in this part of the world. Then head to Anacortes which has a lovely historical downtown with tons of great restaurants (Adrift, A-Town Bistro, 5th Street Bistro, to name a few...). From Anacortes you can go out on a whale watching boat or take a ferry to the San Juans and Vancouver Island. The Majestic Inn in Anacortes has wonderful rooms and a stunning rooftop deck. So much to see in this part of the world- these are just a handful of the amazing places to see and things to do! You'll have a wonderful time!

Thank you for your suggestions. We are spending three nights on Whidbey and two nights in LaConnor. We have been once before and enjoyed the town of Langley. We plan to drive the entire island and thanks to your comments will visit Deception Pass State Park and Fort Casey. I am going to check out the other ideas for easy hikes/walks that you were so kind to mention!
