Chuckanut Drive offers beautiful views of the bay, country, island, mountains, and coast. Plus, you can get out of your car to eat fresh oysters, peer into tide pools on a secluded beach, or hike to a mountain summit, all right off the byway.
Instead of facing the crowded roadways of Interstate 5, take a striking and slow paced alternative along the Chuckanut Drive. Stop in and sip a cup of tea in a small café as you travel through attractive farmlands and quaint towns such as Fairhaven. A side trip through the historic towns of Bay View and Samish Island treats you to an overlook of Samish Bay. Eat fresh apples, berries and other produce, or spend a day by the shore to snack on oysters, crabs and other shellfish.
