Seattle Weekly readers voted Whidbey Island as the best One Day Getaway for 2010 and, being fans of all things stellar, we decided to try a quick trip across the Sound to Langley to see last week's Perseid meteor showers.
Langley is a bastion of comfort, with overflowing gardens, award-winning restaurants, rare book stores, and gorgeous walks on the water. After an incredible meal created by Chef Matt Costello of the Inn at Langley, we ended up missing the Perseids completely - lulled to sleep by full bellies and the sound of lapping waves.
Langley is the perfect place for a quick Get Out! getaway - especially if you love food. You should go. It's a lot closer than you think.
