Eastsound is located on Orcas Island, the second most populated island of the San Juan Islands. Back in 1910, steamboats of the Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet used to dock at Eastsound. There are a few hotels and restaurants, gift stores, grocery stores, and several churches in Eastsound. Cultural events, plays, and recitals are regularly held at the Orcas Community Center just outside of Eastsound. Eastsound is a popular tourist destination due to its attractive scenery. Moran State Park is also located on Orcas Island. This park consists of over 5,000 acres of forest with over 30 miles of hiking trails. Boating, hiking, biking, horseback riding, and camping are activities the Moran State Park has available. An observation tower is located at the top of Mount Constitution inside Moran State Park. The observation tower was built out of stone by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The view from the top of the tower is considered one of the world's best panoramic views. Access to the top of the mountain is either via a road or by a hiking trail for the more adventurous.

Eastsound Weather & Climate

Northwest Washington , between Semiahmoo Bay and Lumnai Bay, there is a body of water called Birch Bay. The climate in this area is temperate and greatly influenced by the Pacific Ocean. It's generally mild, often referred to as "The Banana Belt of the Northwest." Although the rainy season can last as long as eight months, it is usually about six months long, leaving the area with a late spring and mild, pleasant summer. Many long weeks of short and cloudy days are commonplace in winter. Summers are quite dry however. This region is occasionally subject to unusual and harsh weather due to an upper level trough that drives down cold Arctic air from the Canadian interior. This cold air mass can collide with a Gulf of Alaska cold front and create high winds, ice, snow, or heavy rains.
