Which island to go for kids activities.


Any recommendation on which island to go? I have 3 young ones ages from 6 to 10 and looking for a place that my kids can enjoy and have fun.

One thing for kids I have heard good things about over the years locally is the Funhouse on Orcas Island.

I looked up their web site now and see they have quite a bit there. Here is a link to their page just for Events Funhouse Summer Activities http://www.thefunhouse.org/events

I heard recently that there will be a zip-line park opening on San Juan Island soon (or maybe it's already open). Then there are family kayak tours from Roche Harbor. And every time we've been by in the summer, we've seen kids having fun in the ponds/lakes at Lakedale Resort.

In the interesting, but maybe not much fun category..... There's a small Interpretive Center at Lime Kiln Point, a favorite whale watching spot, and the Whale Museum in Friday Harbor, where Tom Hanks was seen with kids (whose, is anybody's guess) a couple weeks ago.

If you review this TA article, it might help you decide. I think San Juan Island has more for kids in things to do and to see.
