Whidbey Island

Whidbey Island is a large island in the northwest corner of Washington State, USA. It is located in Island County, Washington. A fact unknown to many is that Whidbey Island is actually the longest Island in the Continental US. This is because Long Island is actually a peninsula dreged off North America by the Dutch when they settled New York.

It is connected to the mainland by a bridge over Deception Pass at the northern end and by ferry links at the south end (Clinton to Mukilteo) and the western shore (Keystone to Port Townsend, on the Olympic Peninsula).

Whidbey Island is home to Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and is renowned for Penn Cove mussels. Also, five Washington State Parks are located on the island, Deception Pass State Park, Fort Ebey State Park, Fort Casey State Park, South Whidbey State Park, and Possession Point State Park.
