An hour's drive from Seattle or Vancouver BC, Coupeville and Central Whidbey Island offer peaceful landscapes and opportunities for biking, hiking, kayaking, sailing, or just breathing in the fresh sea air. Relax in locally owned and operated restaurants and inns, or spend some time exploring the wide variety of shops. Central Whidbey offers many choices to our visitors, including the Island County Museum, Admiralty Lighthouse, Meerkerk Gardens, expansive Stae Parks, antique shops, art galleries, heritage farms, working studios, wineries, farmers markets, and an Arts Center with year round fine art classes.
The landscape of Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve is open to visitors and residents alike. The 25 square mile historical reserve encompasses a mixture of federal, state, county and private property, all managed in a way that preserves its historic essence. This means that changes in the cultural landscape will continue but in a way that respects the past. Historic farms are still farmed, forests harvested and century old buildings used as homes or places of business. More information can be found at www.nps.gov/ebla
There are stunning views, two state parks and a lighthouse within Ebey's Landing National Historic Reserve as well as the historic waterfront town of Coupeville, one of the oldest towns in Washington State.
We hope to see you soon!
