Why Whidbey?

"This Island community promotes a healthy lifestyle. There is easy access to organic foods, outdoor markets, fresh eggs, healthcare and a sense of community, I can't think of a better place to raise children.

Our family especially enjoys the access to outdoor activities the Whidbey Island offers. During one weekend you can ski or hike in the Cascade Mountains, walk the local beaches and boat through the San Juan Islands! It is such a joy to live and play through all the seasons here on Whidbey."
