TripAdvisor has named Edmonds one of the 25 best spots in the U.S. to take a family for a beach vacation, touting the city’s businesses, restaurants, beaches, art museum and parks.
In its recommendation, TripAdvisor — billed as the world’s largest travel site — calls Edmonds “the perfect family weekend getaway for a taste of coastal Washington charm.”
The article beckons readers: “Stroll past locally-owned boutiques and scrumptious restaurants and cafes in the picturesque downtown—grown-ups will especially love the grain-to-glass pours at Scratch Distillery.”
Further, it advises visiting families: “Don’t miss the views at Stamm Overlook Park, or any of the half-dozen beaches lining the shores (Marina Beach Park is a favorite). If you’re visiting on a rainy day, the kids will love the small-but-mighty exhibits at the Cascadia Art Museum.”
Edmonds is the only Washington state city on the list, which includes locations from Massachusetts to Delaware to Florida to Alabama to California. Rockaway, Oregon is also listed.
