Coupeville: What a Great Place to Getaway
Coupeville, the second oldest town in Washington state is tucked away on Whidbey Island. You can reach this charming, historic waterfront town two ways. One is a quick and scenic ferry ride. The other, a leisurely drive through the Skagit Valley and over Deception Pass. Whichever route you choose, Coupeville is the ideal destination for a relaxing getaway. This small historic town is big on charm and photo ops. There are several great restaurants, one of my favorite ice cream shops and plenty of shopping. If you like to hike, head to Ebey's Landing or Fort Casey National Park for great trails. My favorite is walking along the bluffs, with expansive views across the sound.
Coupeville also offers a number of festivals and other activities. Thanks to the Blue Goose Inn, Coupeville for this list of upcoming events!
