Plan Your Visit








Things to See and Do

This 55-mile-long island is a thriving artists’ haven with stunning views at every turn, and hundreds of visual artists have made their homes here. A large number of resident glassblowers have given the island the title of "Little Murano", named after the Italian island known for its history of exquisite glass art. In Langley, you can have your own "Murano" experience and blow your own piece of glass art at Callahan's Firehouse. Or get your photography fix with an 'edu-tour' from Whidbey Photo Adventures. If making art is not your style, be sure to visit at least a couple of artist studios during your visit. Check out the Whidbey Art Trail – a year-round circuit of artist studios open to public visits. Observing an artist in action, in their own working environment, is an experience not to be missed!

The galleries that line Langley’s little streets are a reflection of this artists’ haven. Art is so much a part of Langley's character that you'll find all kinds of art hidden in yards, alleys, mounted on buildings and even on phone booths. Explore some of the many artistic offerings: Rob Schouten Gallery, Museo, Side Market, Stadler Studio, Whidbey Island Gem Gallery, Island Art Glass, Music for the Eyes.

Walk into Music for the Eyes and you see colors and textures in every direction.

Check out some of the many tales about the fascinating artists who live and work in our island community: Calligraphy; Handforged; Bob Bowling's Tiny Houses; Basketry; Chuck Petti's Infinite Tower; Music for the Eyes Brings the World to Whidbey; and The Artist Colony that Started It All.

Get out on the water and enjoy a kayak trip along Saratoga passage where migrating gray whales and resident orcas might join you.

Visit our award-winning wineries ( such as Ott and Murphy, Blooms Winery, or Spoiled Dog) and distilleries, take a picnic to the beach, or simply sit on a bench overlooking the Langley marina and enjoy one of the world’s most enchanting views.
