Whidbey Island is special among the islands of Puget Sound and to the people who call Whidbey home. Close to Seattle but set apart just enough, it blends the best of urban life with the rhythm and peacefulness of rural life.

Langley is the oldest town on South Whidbey, with a long history of seafaring, fishing, farming and logging. More recently Langley has become a center for the arts, including galleries filled with local works; annual festivals like Choochokam Arts Festival and Djangofest; Whidbey Island Center for the Arts and Whidbey Children’s Theater. Also in Langley is The Clyde Theater, an old theater given a new lease on life and a perennially popular community hub.

Restaurants and shops abound in Langley, from home style cooking to Northwest fusion and antiques to cutting edge fashion. There are also lots of stylish places to stay.

South Whidbey schools are nearby and many community organizations are located here, so there’s always something interesting and exciting going on.

The Highlands is helping to shape the future of Langley, as a Low Impact Development, a Built Green™ Community with the use of innovative energy efficient materials and practices. Sustainable living has become a priority for many people here in the Northwest. The Highlands at Langley is a part of the dialogue about sustainability on Whidbey Island.
