Can’t wait to get out on the road again? Join us Saturday, July 18th, we’re driving the Whidbey Island Tour—a nice, scenic half-day tour!
Start out in Monroe for a few twists and turns heading toward the island. Meet up around 8:00 am, out front of Starbucks at 19813 State Route 2, in the Monroe Plaza. After a short drivers’ meeting, head out 8:30 sharp.
We’ll run up along Lake Roesiger, through Granite Falls, then over to Smokey Point in Marysville. From there, west toward Warm Beach, up
through Stanwood, La Conner toward Fidalgo Island, then over Deception Pass onto Whidbey. From there, curvy back roads all the way down the island.
We end up near the southern tip in beautiful Langley around lunch time. After lunch, just a few miles to the Clinton/Mukilteo ferry to the mainland. Lots of eating places, antique stores and other small town shops await you in Langley’s historic district.
You might even want to make the drive back up the island on the main road. Or you can jump on the Port Townsend ferry to the peninsula for more adventures. You’re also close to the legendary curves along Chuckanut Drive up toward Bellingham.
Plan to meet in the parking lot at the Monroe Plaza Starbucks, 19813 State Highway 2, at Woods Creek Road. 8:00 am for a drivers’ meeting, itineraries, and signed waivers. We leave at 8:30 sharp.
