With a belly full of good food, take a walk and explore all that downtown Edmonds has to offer. Shopping abounds downtown or stretch your legs with a walk on the beach. If you want a longer after-dinner adventure, hop on the ferry for a 30-minute joy ride to Kingston. Happy dining! 


It's time to go coastal.
