Family Fun Center
Possibly the funnest thing ever, bumper cars are the way to go at Family Fun Center. And there's hardly ever a line, even on weekends. #kidsfun
The infamous salmon "wings." Sockeye salmon collars, served with a fin still attached. Succulent and finger-licking good.
The quinoa salad is sprinkled with feta and topped with a perfect sunny-side-up egg. (Plus bonus roasted squash, when it's in season.)
Great hot wings here. High-end versions of the classics. Definitely recommended.
Ada's Technical Books and Cafe
Great nerdy kids games here. (As well as nerdy stuff for grown ups.)
Willow Creek Cafe & Saloon
Willow Creek, Montana
The famous rack of ribs. The secret to this luscious BBQ experience? Honey mustard and coffee in the sauce. #win

Skagit County, Washington
This pick-your-own place grows dozens of heirloom apple and pear varieties. Pay by the pound. About 80 minutes north of Seattle.
