What is the best day trip from Seattle?

Just about 30 miles north of Seattle sits Whidbey Island, part of the group of islands that form the northern boundary of Puget Sound. It’s a quick ferry trip from Mukilteo and the island is an ideal daytrip getaway with plenty to take in—wine tasting (at Whidbey Island Winery), eating local Penn Cove mussels (in Coupeville), and hiking Deception Pass State Park (there are 35 miles of trails). Remarkable bridges dot country roads and make for postcard pretty photo opps; the arched version at Deception Pass is a suspended, two-lane stunner.
