Getting Out & About

Part of the charm of Edmonds is the many family-owned and operated shops, like Comstock Jewelers. From father to son, and now to grandson, the secret ingredient to their loyal following is their excellent care, customer service and great value. The Wooden Spoon is another long time family-run shop, with everything under the sun for your kitchen! Housewares and the Papery are also great shops.

I love how some things have not changed (the small-town feel) and how some things have gotten better with time (shops and restaurants). People are still courteous, smile, and wave when you stop to let them cross the street.

We have found Edmonds—and particularly in the Bowl—is a great environment in which to create family memories. You can walk to the farmers market downtown for produce and fresh donuts, walk on the ferry for lunch or a summer concert in Kingston, go squidding on the pier, or head to Yost Park or Klahaya (both have outdoor pools in the summer). And Harbor Square is one of the best athletic clubs in the state.

Anthony’s Beach Cafe is wonderfully kid friendly, where during warmer months children can play for hours on end in the sandpit facing the marina, adjacent to the outdoor dining patio, while parents enjoy uninterrupted conversation. On wet or cooler days, Demetris Woodstone Taverna is a hit for their kiddie play area (tucked away in the corner) and diverse menu offerings. And last but not least, Kafe Neo on Hwy 99 offers the best local Greek food for takeout or sit-down.

There are so many great resturants, breweries and pubs, even a wine bar. Take a walk at sunset to watch the sky and mountains change color… and stop for a frozen yogurt at Revelations.

Seasonally, there is something for everyone! From the Fourth of July Parade and the Beat Brackett 5K run to the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. You can enjoy the Saturday Market and walking the beaches, too.
