Winter on Whidbey Island is a magical experience. It is a wonderful time to come, stay and experience the island. It is also a great time to buy or sell property. Waterfront properties will most likely never be this price again so if you've been dreaming of that summer place or beach cabin getaway, now is the time to act. Christina just loves to show people around the island, so come on up! Whidbey is "the shortest distance to far away" as the saying goes. Just hop on the Mukilteo ferry and 20 minutes later, you're HERE!
The summer crowds are gone but all of our artists, shops, restaurants, art galleries and wineries are still welcoming guests. There are no less than five different holiday markets to enjoy. There is a very special Artists Studio Hop event happening November 29 & 30, the same dates as the Country Christmas at the Fair Holiday Bazaar in Langley. Shop for one-of-a-kind handcrafted gifts and vintage collectibles. Both Langley and Coupeville will be all dressed up for the holidays and the decorations are really wonderful to see. Whidbey Island Dance Theater celebrates "The Nutcracker" with performances from December 3-22nd.
The events don't end with the holiday season; the fun continues into January and February. January 4th, Langley hosts its annual Sea Float Scramble at Seawall Park. Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) offers several concerts and exhibits throughout the winter months. February 1st, the Beach Watchers present the very popular Sound Waters Conference, a one day university on issues of importance to Puget Sound and its residents. Feb 15-17, island wineries host the Whidbey Vintners Red Wine and Chocolate Tour. March 1st & 2nd is the weekend for the Coupeville Mussel Festival which draws seafood lovers from all over.
We hope to see you here on Whidbey this winter!
