USA Today 10 Best US Islands: #3 – Whidbey Island, Washington

"Six state parks, two historic villages and a noticeable artistic bent help define an emerald isle just 30 miles from Seattle, making Whidbey Island a favorite escape in the Pacific Northwest. While 45 miles long, the island isn't very wide, giving its roads, bluffs and beaches stunning aquatic views. After long days of outdoor adventure, the island's plentiful (and often very luxurious) B&Bs make the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate.  Whidbey is also easy to access, giving it the edge over other nearby islands."
