As I said in my previous post, I started off this trip in Everett bright and early at 7 AM after a 3.5-hour sleep because my flight from SFO arrived at the gate 2 hours late and I got to the hotel a whole hour later. But anyways, the first thing I was to visit was the Everett Factory through an invitation-only tour where I could be on the same level where all the airplanes are produced. It was amazing!! But sadly no photos since it was not allowed inside the factory.
I’ll give an itinerary of the trip below, but I’ll explain in words what we did first.

After Everett’s Paine field airport, we went to the most beautiful place on the entire west coast that I have ever been to. It is called Whidbey Island. You can access it by taking the Clinton-Mukilteo ferry which is very close to the airport. We spent the rest of the evening driving around and taking photos very often because we couldn’t go a mile or 2 without having some lovely view to take photos of. It took a full 4 hours to circle the island and then we took the 5 freeway down to a restaurant in the city. Then we stayed in a hotel.
The next day we checked out Chihuly glass museum which I had been to the year before when I flew to Seattle on Alaska Airlines, and it was so amazing, I decided to go back. This time I actually took photos. We also went to the famous Pike’s Place Market, then to the top of the Space Needle and my god were the views great from up there. Then we went to a well-known park called Kerry Park. Have you ever seen those long panoramic shots of the Seattle downtown skyline? Well, Kerry Park is where they all are taken from. So after spending some time there, we ate at a restaurant in a Seattle suburb called Issaquah where we stayed the night at a good friend’s place.
The next day, we ate at Brown Bag Cafe, a great breakfast place that I haven’t eaten at in 10 years! I even went there with the same people I did 10 years ago. After that, we went to Boeing Field Airport. This one is in Seattle and pretty close to Seattle Tacoma International Airport.
The next day we took a ferry to Bainbridge Island which has my favorite ice cream place, Mora. Then we drove a little bit deeper into the island until we ran into a Swedish style town called Poulsbo. We took some pictures and from there drove back to the ferry, went back to Seattle, and drove to the airport for our flight back to SF and then LA. It was a great trip, and I definitely enjoyed my time here. Please leave a comment if you have any questions about our trip or any of the places visited.
