Edmonds Things to Do

  • Murals Tour

    This city recently began painting large-scale murals on the exterior walls of the buildings in the downtown area, transforming these beige and boring surfaces into a delight for the eyes. Each mural features something about Edmonds, whether historical or the natural beauty which abounds here. It was fun to learn a bit about the history of Edmonds,...

  • Underwater Park

    I can't tell you much about what lies under the water off Edmonds, but I can tell you that in 1970 the city set aside a 27 acre section of Puget Sound as a marine preserve and sanctuary. It is considered to be one of the first under water parks on the west coast. According to the city literature, there are tide and bottom lands under the waves of...

  • Brackett's Landing Park, North Side

    Brackett's Landing Park is bisected by the ferry terminal, and the nature of the park on the north side is somewhat different than on the south side. It is different enough that it seems to deserve its own tip on VT.Here, the beach is somewhat curved and combined with a small artificial peninsula made of large rocks. Looking north west from here...

Edmonds Restaurants

  • Going Back to the 1960s...In a Good Way

    Claire's has an atmosphere about it as though it came right out of the 1960s. There are some updates (the track lighting apparatus is more along the lines of the 1990s) but general arrangement feels like it is out of the distant past.This includes my experiences with the waitresses (yes, all were female when I visited), as they all were very...

  • Interesting Hawaiian Vibe

    You walk into A Very Taki Tiki Bar, and instantly it lives up to its Ta(c)ky reputation. The whole bar/burger joint is covered in surfing paraphernalia, including a mannequin lifeguard and plenty of leis and fake palm trees and pictures of Elvis all over the place. It actually has its own little bit of charm, in a kitschy kind of way. There are a...

Edmonds Transportation

  • Bus Service to Edmonds + Transit Center

    Except for longer distances, it really isn't vital that there be bus service in downtown Edmonds. The core of the city is small, and most of it may be covered by walking.The core of transportation services are located in a few block area where the Amtrak and Ferry Terminal are located. Between the Ferry Terminal and the Amtrak station, there is a...

  • Edmonds Ferry Terminal

    One of the most popular routes to get to the Olympic Peninsula from Seattle and other areas of Puget Sound is by way of the Edmonds - Kingston ferry. This means that the long line for the ferry can sometimes be two hours or so. It is several miles from the ferry terminal to Interstate 5, and yet the line waiting for the ferry can reach all the way...

  • Edmonds Train Station (Amtrak or...

    Edmonds has several passenger trains a day pass through it. This includes one long distance train each direction (Amtrak Empire Builder from Seattle to Chicago), two regional trains each direction (Amtrak Cascades from Seattle and Portland to Vancouver BC), and several commuter trains (SoundTransit Sounder) that operate pretty much only for those...


Edmonds Shopping

  • Beautiful things made by local artists

    What a surprising and refreshing array of functional art by local artists I found here. The shop was bursting with color, and the friendly staff had stories about every artist inside - and there are over 100. From tabletop items, to vases, mosaic mirrors, and a quite amazing selection of jewelry and wearable art - I left with some delightful...

  • All Sorts of Stuff, Food and Local Arts...

    While the name of the market is officially the "Edmonds Museum Summer Market" the current incantation runs from early May (most certainly "Spring" in western Washington) into early October (most decidedly "Autumn" here!). The market is open only on Saturdays.As the name implies, the market is located right next to the Edmonds Historical Society and...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Edmonds Off The Beaten Path

  • Public Fishing Pier at Port of Edmonds

    While the public fishing pier is open all year, every day, the fishing regulations may not necessarily allow fishing from it at any time. The pier is located in Washington Fish and Wildlife Area 9 in terms of what and when fishing seasons are open and closed, and it is advisable to check the WDFW to determine when fishing is allowed in this area....

  • Small Park on Port of Kingston Land

    Just south of Brackett's Landing Park south end, there is a small continuation of this park. It is very hard to tell where private land begins and public land ends, and there are no unfriendly signs indicating that you are unwelcome. However, nothing indicates you are welcome either.Some of this land is a small park that is part of the Port of...

  • Edmonds Marina Beach Park: Olympic Views

    Located on the south end of the publicly accessible part of the Edmonds Waterfront, this small park features an off-least dog area, beach access, picnic facilities, and a small playground. Most beaches on Puget Sound are not sand beaches, but pea-sized gravel. The Edmonds Marina Beach Park has sandy areas, making it reasonably popular on warm...
