ORS and FRH both short walks to town, many good places to eat. BVS has good eats on the field too.

Hub's Pie on the Fly, Tacoma Narrows Airport (KTIW). It has only been open a few months but is already a big hit. Owned by the Harmon Brewery folks, who really know what they're doing.

IMHO ( as the internet lingo says) it would be nice if the name of the airport was used along with the identifier when posting. It''s kind of awkward to have find the book and look up an identifier to find out what a member is talking about, particularly if the location is other than relatively local.

"48 ragwing" directly above this post has the right idea. Tom Downeys post leaves me wondering what he is talking about until I can find the book, If I even want to.

Has anyone flown to the San Juan Islands northwest of Seattle? Looks like a great fly-in destination. Friday Harbor has a listing on funplacestofly.com. Just wondering if any 170s have visited.

I flew into Friday Harbour to look at the 170 I ended up buying as the PO was kind enough to bring it there. Neat spot, walk to a cute town with lots of eating options and good ice cream.

The San Juan Islands are a great place to visit for the scenery and the airports close to good shops and eateries. Friday Harbor, Roche Harbor(small landing fee) and Orcus Island airports are only a short walk to town. Lopaz Island has a golf course next to the airport, but it is about 4 miles to the village. Its a nice bike ride if your so inclined. As Tom mentioned, Skaget has a very nice resturant on the airport.
Another good destination is Point Roberts, right on the Canadian border west of Bellingham. Short walk into town and great views of the bay. Enjoy!

At the bottom of the ramp on the main dock at Friday Harbor the seafood shop will cook fresh crab for you and also has lots of other goodies.
You can rent sea kayaks nearby to paddle around the harbor or to surrounding islands as the waters are fairly protected from wind and waves.

KESW, Easton State. It’s on the east side of Stampede Pass in the Cascades, right on I-90. 2000’ grass strip with lights. Half mile walk to a little local burger joint. Great scenery and stampede and snoqualmie passes are close.

Didn't scroll through all the comments, but if it hasn't been listed, KDIJ (Driggs, Idaho) has a fantastic restaurant open from Memorial day through Labor day. You can literally sit next to the taxiway and a short distance from the runway in their outdoor dining area for a remarkable lunch. Great food and service, tremendous views of the Tetons.
