On July 2, Expedia.com staff listed the San Juans as one of the most scenic West Coast destinations out of 11 locations.
The post reads “Cozy harbors, rolling fields, tree-dense parks and grand mountain views lend their notes to the symphony that is the San Juan Islands. At Pelindaba Lavender, the scents are as appealing as the sights, where purple flowers paint the landscape. Cycle the scenic byway, go whale watching or take a sunset kayak tour — it’s all incredible here.”
Lily Rogers, who wrote the feature, told the Journal that the San Juans is her top vacation spot among all 50 states.
“The San Juan Islands are like nowhere else,” she said. “It’s not just a gem of the West Coast, it’s one of the prettiest places in the country.”
