The Washington State Ferry to San Juan Island and Sidney on Vancouver Island was great. There are some unexpected nice touches. The food options weren’t impressive but the rest impressed me.
The ferry also had historical photos displayed. These two were taken in 1912 and 1916.
Sidney’s suburbs have well maintained, nice looking houses, flower beds and yards. The main street is neat and tidy with many sculptures, wide sidewalks and flowers.
If you can, I think that the ferry is a more pleasant way to travel from United States to Canada than flying. You can avoid some of the more intense security measures, for example, body scans when you travel by ferry, and the ferry ride is scenic and fun.
Thanks for visiting.
