    The Falls are beautiful! The San Juan Islands are also really great to visit. There is an old army fort – Fort Casey – on Whidbey Island that is fun to explore and further around the island is Deception Pass. This is such a beautiful place with lot’s of hiking trails. And for some fun shopping and cute places to eat the city of Langley is also a great tourist stop on Whidbey Island. We also love Leavenworth; there are various festivals throughout the year. They have a Christmas Tree lighting various weekends in December and the kids can sled right by the festivities and then grab some pizza across the street: http://www.icicleinn.com/festivals/christmaslighting.htm

    We also love taking the Clipper to Victoria. It’s fun to get fish ‘n chips on Fisherman’s wharf and feed the wild seals, hike around the edge of the island, visit Butchart Gardens and walk around the waterfront and through the various tourist shops. Also, Roger’s Chocolate Soda Shop is yummy.
    In the spring, the Tulip Festival in La Conner is a must see if you haven’t done that yet. There are many other fun things to do around here, but these are some of my favorites. Jeremy and I are from the Seattle area so we have visited a lot of the local tourist spots. 🙂
