Eat donuts at the Donut House in Anacortes, drink beers and eat oysters at the Old Edison Inn in Bow, drive up Chuckanut, take a hike, eat jalapeno poppers whilst throwing back dollar shots of whisky and/or tequila at the Train Wreck in Burlington, visit the San Juan Islands, or if you don’t have a lot of time visit Guemes Island… take the walk on ferry and eat lunch at Anderson’s General Store.
