  • Bar and Grill and Desserts

    Everett Restaurants

    I only walked up here from the train station to get a slice of cake. Therefore, I can say that I have sampled the food very extensively at all. It has the atmosphere more of a dive bar, but with a family dining area in it. It is unfortunate that it is kept so dark in here as having some seats face east towards the mountains might actually give the...

    Ocean Shores Warnings and Dangers

    There are very few public restrooms anywhere in the Ocean Shores community. Even Damon Point State Park has only a single portable toilet at its entrance, and even that disappears from time to time. The restroom nearest that point is owned by the Quinault Nation and is reserved for the users of their campground only.Just west of the big entrance...

    Bremerton Transportation

    While it is a heavily trafficed ferry route headed out of downtown Seattle, the Bremerton Ferry is not quite as busy as the Seattle - Bainbridge Island ferry is. You will find that the vessels used on this route are usually one slight step smaller than those used on the Seattle - Bainbridge Island route, though they are still larger than those used...

    Leavenworth Things to Do

    In the corner of the village centre, there is a nice place called München Haus. They offer nice "boiled" (mulled) red wine, pretzels and all kinds of bratwurst. You can sit outside in the garden and in winter you get coal burning pans on your table to warm your hands and selves. Worth visiting.

I opted for a beef & pork bratwurst, some potato salad, a pretzel, and a dark beer.You order your food up front in a cafeteria style fashion and your beer further back in a similar manner. There are two levels of seating with the main level consisting of...

    Anacortes Tourist Traps

    The ferry terminal that links Anacortes with Sidney, BC and the San Juan Islands should be a place with a few things to do, and at least a few restaurants. After all, during peak season people can wait in line for two hours or more just to get the next boat, and sometimes that may be full as well.Sadly, there isn't much out here at the ferry...

There are several hiking trails, we only did the loops...
