    NAS Whidbey Island

    Advertisements
    We got orders there a couple days ago and will be moving in June.

    Sew. Who all is out there? What's the area like? Does anyone know what housing is like? I've searched and searched and can't find any pictures. Do you prefer living off or on base? Is the area pretty safe?

    She is too. There is a facebook group that she joined though. I'm sure if you searched it you could find it. I know she has started talking to the other wives in the group just to get basic information.

    She also told me that apparently the apartments on base are two stories? Not sure exactly though, she told me through a very long text trying to tell me the story of how they finally got a duty station.

    Yay!! Whidbey Island is right next to Everett. I don't know much about the base information, but I've lived here my whole life and know the area quite well. It. Is. Gorgeous. You'll get to ride the ferry a lot if you want to come to the main land. It is a smaller community. If you don't live on base, there are such places as Oak Harbour (drive in movie theater!) And there is tons of stuff there. I go to Whidbey for touristy stuff like to see. Ft. Casey or go up to deception pass, or just walk along the beach. Yeah, I think you'll like it.

    My daughter is still there. It's essentially a safe area but I will tell you it's rather depressed. Many business have closed, jobs are not easy to come by. Housing is all relatively new. I don't think it matters if you live on or off base, it's all about preference. I believe the military housing is controlled by Forest City:

    I'm not on Whidbey but I'm in Everett. I hope you are prepared for the complete opposite weather from FL. It's cold & wet 9 months out of the year. Personally, I love it. The housing for Whidbey looks like it managed by Forrest City. Find A Home
    You can also look on Craigslist for places to rent if you dont want to live in housing.
