In early June, I traveled to the San Juan Islands with my college roommate, Julie. To be honest, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into but trusted Julie to be the ultimate planner that she is. And because Tour Guide Julie never disappoints, it was the perfect mix of the great outdoors, amazing food and good company. If you're on the market for a domestic vacation, I would highly recommend! 

Where to Stay: Island Inn, such a cool European-feel hotel with Ikea furniture and the softest sheets of all time. You can even buy them here. The toiletries are all Malin + Goetz (did they know I was coming?), and the owner prepares you fresh granola and fruits for breakfast. Now, that's what I call customer service. 

Brunch/Lunch: Cask & Schooner, best cheeseburger of my life + they have Stumptown coffee. Done and done. 

What to Do: Sea Kayaking...unfortunately, we didn't see any Orca whales, namely Free Willy, but hopefully next time. Also, be sure to check out Roche Harbor for beautiful views and an incredible display of yachts that are more expensive than most houses.
