The Grumman A-6E Intruder 152907 is on display in the Oak Harbor Beach Park. It wears the colors of VA-128 (

Historic Downtown Oak Harbor, on Pioneer Way.
This was and still is the original part of Oak Harbor. The city has gotten bigger over the past 30-40 years, but they still try to keep the original historic feel of how Oak Harbor used to be back in the old days.
This is the coolest bridge/state park ever. It got its name when explorers came over to the west and had a difficult time surviving this difficult pass. Due to the sudden changes in the very strong current and whirlpools all over the place, it was a difficult area to maneuver. Between the bright green trees, clean beaches, blue water, and trails, you can spend hours exploring or just watching.
Tip: Park your car and walk across the bridge. There is a very cool trail to the water on the center island that connects the two sections of the bridge.

This place reminds you what typical American food is and why you love it! It is great grandma's home cooked, fatty, big serving meal that smells so good you don't even know which you want to order! Good enough you consider coming to dinner after eating lunch there.
Favorite Dish: I had the open-faced meatloaf sandwich! OMG! It was orgasmic. Perfect place on a cold day (like most in Seattle). Go hike around Deception pass then come in, get a table next to the fireplace and eat away the chill!
The Oak Harbor Transit Center is located essentially in downtown Oak Harbor, and it is essentially across the street from Flinstone Park as well (which is convenient if you need to use the restrooms on your way somewhere, or if you need to just walk around a little bit and need something a bit more interesting than the transit center to explore).
This transit center is served by buses that connect it to Deception Pass State Park, Anacortes and Mount Vernon to the north and the rest of Whidbey Island and the ferry terminal at Clinton (and thereby the rest of the Puget Sound region).
Island Transit does not currently charge for its bus services, as it would cost more to collect the fare than would be collected. They are the only transit agency that serves this transit center.
The shelters are highly enclosed, which is useful on a day with heavy weather coming in off the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
The web site below is for Island Transit, which operates this transit center. The specific stop identification is the following URL:
This will give you a list of buses arriving and departing from this station, but it must be a day and time during which the buses are operating (not too late at night, nor a holiday).
It all started with a joke: the community wanted to reclaim some land on the waterfront, and so they asked that anyone with some material to donate to please dump it in that particular location. This led to various jokes about the Flinstones television cartoon, and eventually the name stuck.
Stuck so much that a "stone car" like the one in the cartoon was even fabricated by a local resident to put there on display.
The park features a restroom facility, a covered picnic type shelter though currently there are no picnic tables in it, and benches with a view of the shoreline and the small bay at this location. On a clear day it is possible to see mountains in several directions from here.
The park is also the location where the waterfront trail turns from a sidewalk along mildly busy roads to a spot where it is separated from the roads by a row of buildings - creating a much more pleasant walking environment.
How to Get Here:
The park is located at Dock Street and Bayshore Drive. It is easier to get here by transit than just about any other location on Whidbey Island, as the Oak Harbor Transit Center is essentially across the street from the park.
