Friday Harbor is a small town. It's quaint with many unique shops and restaurants. During January, many shops close down, so keep that in mind when traveling. The other side of the island has another town, but we didn't go there. So, what is there to do other than eat, sleep, and shop? Whale watching! Orcas are always around, so you might see one of the pods. You can either take a boat or kayak. The island also has a lot of hiking and camping and a large zipline area. This is a fun, laid-back place with only two national chains: Ace Hardware and Wells Fargo. Very nice. Explore the many farms and vineyards. It's a great place to escape.
