Visit Langley

Langley, Washington is a quaint seaside community on the bluffs of Whidbey Island, overlooking the Puget Sound.

In addition to good people, Langley is full of natural beauty.  We are the only town anywhere  where you can watch whales feeding 100 yards from the town shoreline.  From February through June  a group of gigantic Grey Whales break their migration north and come into our local waters to feast on small sand shrimp in shallow water so close to shore that you feel you could reach out and touch them.

In addition to Herons and Osprey, there are  dozens of Bald Eagles in and around Langley, while there are very few bothersome insects.  We never thought we would live in a town where people would get more excited seeing a mosquito than seeing yet another Eagle flying overhead.  Believe it or not, we have neither poison oak nor poison ivy.

We enjoy the natural beauty of tall trees–Douglas Fir, plus countless others–green and refreshed by our bountiful rain.  The Pacific Northwest is the only place in the contiguous states that will not suffer drought in the future as a result of global climate change.

We have the most beautiful summers, with lots of activities, such as kayaking, bicycling, running and taking advantage of our many festivals and celebrations.   See to see what’s going on.  Don’t forget to stop by Music for the Eyes to say hi!
