Village by the Sea, Langley, WA

“Voted one of America’s happiest seaside towns”  by Coastal Living.

From the moment you board the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry for the short ride to Whidbey Island you feel as though you are stepping away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The drive to Langley from the ferry is a quick 10 minute leisurely drive through farms, forests and an island vineyard (Whidbey Island Winery).

The first place you’ll see as you enter Langley is the Island County Fairgrounds,  (there are RV accommodations but we have never stayed here).

 

Affectionately known as “Langley by the Sea” this picturesque community invites you to stroll it’s streets and explore it’s waterfront.

Langley is such a wonderful little “village by the sea”!  The community strives to maintain a comfortable, quaint, relaxed atmosphere.  The locals are friendly and helpful and are always willing to strike up a conversation😍.

Here’s a few more photo’s I didn’t include above but I thought they were worth adding.
