There’s so much to do on San Juan Island! Whale watching, sailboating, walking, shopping, taking photos, birding, hiking, exploring…by the end of the day, you’ll need some downtime, so make a quick stop at your Tucker House suite, then head out to join the community of Friday Harbor with our hometown family delights.
Movies in the Park – Saturday evenings in August and September – Sunken Park
Just across the street from Tucker House is a newly renovated park where the community enjoys family movies in a “sit in” form rather than drive in. This summer’s schedule includes The Wizard of Oz, Mamma Mia, and Footloose. Admission is free.
Drive In at the Fairgrounds – County fairgrounds, Friday nights in June, begins at dusk
This is the 2nd year for this innovative project, and last year was a fantastic hit with the local community. This year includes Night at the Museum, Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone, and more. Admission is $5 each, family up to 5 is $20.
Dinner at Coho Restaurant – 120 Nichols
This is a Friday Harbor favorite! Just a block away from Tucker House Inn is an intimate restaurant featuring Northwest cuisine. After dinner, stroll down Spring Street and down to the docks for a pleasant cool walk.
Palace Theater – Celebrating its 100th year in 2015, Friday Harbor’s only movie house shows first run films, and the lobby contains a display of memorabilia from Andrew MacLaglen, the famous director of Shenandoah and many, many other films. Until his passing in 2014, Andrew contributed his talent and love to San Juan Island.
So, don’t grab that tv remote or put your jammies on just yet – the summer evening of Friday Harbor awaits!
