I was stationed in Bangor Sub Base which is not too far from Whidbey. The weather in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful in the summer but it rains a ton from about September to May. I really enjoyed my time in that area as there is a lot to do. There is Seattle and everything that comes with it (Seattle aquarium, space needle, Pike Place Market, Starbucks Coffee, Professional Baseball, football, and soccer teams, a ton of good food and craft beer if you're of age, of course.) There are a ton of out door activities in the area and you can rent most camping gear, including travel trailers, from MWR. You can also get super cheap tickets to the baseball/football/soccer games through MWR. Usually they are upper level seats, but there is not a bad seat in Safeco Field. You can jump on I-90 and head about an hour or so east of Seattle and find a Ski resort or 2 if that's your thing. There is definitely not a shortage of things to do in that area.

Thank you Scott
