In case you live in the Seattle area, or are heading there soon for a family vacay, you should consider a day trip to Whidbey Island. It is a wonderful place to spend time as a family and very picturesque--your kids will go wild when you drive your car onto a large ferry :) If you enjoy antiquing, you'll be interested in knowing we passed a few thrift and antique stores that begged to be searched. It was almost painful to not stop!
When it comes to eating lunch or dinner, make sure you eat at one of the delicious eateries in Coupeville (we hit the deli and were not disappointed by the homemade shakes or pulled pork sandwich). Within just a quarter mile you'll find 5 restaurants that all boast excellent reviews.
And last, hit Fort Casey with the kiddos. They'll have the chance to play hide n' seek in old WWII bunkers, explore a lighthouse and throw sticks and rocks into the ocean. For my kids this equaled heaven. The views are amazing as well so go, go, go!
