It's always a bid odd writing about your own hometown, but if I didn't live in Langley on Whidbey Island, I'd surely visit! Since my favorite place on the planet is Ebey's Prairie near Coupeville, I'll start in that area and work my way south. After that big hike on the beach and prairie, stop in at Toby's Tavern for mussels, fish 'n chips and a brew or two. Other dining options include Christopher's and the Front Street Grill. For more outdoorsy stuff, Fort Casey and Joseph Whidbey are state parks located in Central Whidbey, both loaded with history. Further south, stop by the historic Greenbank Farm at the narrowest part of the island, where you can indulge in food and art. Langley is the artistic hub of South Whidbey, with its galleries, shops and home to numerous community theaters and Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. My favorite dinner spots are The Inn at Langley, Prima Bistro and Village Pizzeria; breakfast/lunch at The Braeburn and Useless Bay Coffee Company; wine tasting at Ott & Murphy; beer and darts at Mo's Pub; and popcorn and a movie at The Clyde Theatre. And then there's that spectacular view overlooking Saratoga Passage. There's no place like home!
