If you’re the type of traveler who isn’t satisfied with the usual tourist fare, the San Juan Islands are home to some unique and fascinating activities you’ll enjoy telling your friends and family about. Here are three of the most unusual places you can visit in the San Juan Islands:
From their soft, fleecy wool to their amusing long-necked figures, alpacas can be some of the most good-humored animals on the planet. Watch and interact with these gentle creatures, then shop from the farm’s collection of warm, exquisite clothing, toys, and accessories made from alpaca wool.
The John S. McMillin Memorial Mausoleum, better known as Afterglow Vista, carries an air of mystery and intrigue, in addition to being picturesque. This Greek-style memorial looks like a structure from King Arthur’s world or a scene from a Dan Brown mystery novel. In fact, it’s said that this site is full of symbolism, due to John McMillin’s membership in the Masonic Order.
This small coffee shop definitely has the novelty factor, as it’s so narrow that you’ll feel like the lady behind the counter is the only other person in the world. There’s not much to do here other than getting drinks, so you probably shouldn’t go out of your way to visit this spot, but if you’re in the area, it’s a good place to get some coffee or juice and maybe snap a few photos.
