Distance from Seattle, WA : 17 milesReason to go:
Edmonds offers a small town feel right up against the shoreline of Puget Sound. It has views of Puget Sound and both the Olympic Mountains and Cascade Range. It is a port in the Washington State Ferries system. Currently, the only ferry from Edmonds is a run to Kingston, Washington.
There are many tiny shops dotting the streets around downtown from a cheese monger, fashion stores to PBS's Rick Steves own Travel Shop .
Its a nice town to pick up a quick lunch and window shop, or grab an ice cream and head on down to the waterfront. Its pedestrian friendly with many crosswalks and 20mph speed restricted. On nice summer evenings and on the weekend it will get very crowded both downtown and in the surrounding parks. Arrive early or late to avoid the crowds of families coming out to go to food, art, jazz festivals or just play on the beach.
