The atmosphere on Whidbey is what might be called iconic or laid-back. Accommodations range from the prestigious to the rustic. Located in the "rain-shadow" of the Olympic Mountains just to the West, Whidbey receives just half the annual rainfall as Seattle.
The North end of the Island is home to the US Naval Air Station at Oak Harbor the largest town on the island. There are plenty of shops and services. Driving through the center of the island reveals bucolic pasture land, forests and the very present rocky shores on both sides of the road. Near the south end of the island the pace slows and windy roads lead to galleries, shops and antique stores.
Everywhere on Whidbey are scenes out of a water color painting. Vibrant colors, high vantage points, beaches, friendly people and a lower more relaxed pace. Local business promote "do nothing here" are much as they do all the activities.
