About this event
Join us for the “Winter Waters” tour – our third "winter" tour. Designed for Members who drive their Porsches year 'round! This tour features charming vistas, abundant small-road driving, and convivial Edison. We’ll start in Monroe and wind north via the back of the back way to Granite Falls. Then we meander north and west out of the foothills and across the flats and fields adjacent to Puget Sound. Our route has an abundance of skinny roads, farmlands, and quiet rural neighborhoods – all wonderful NW winter scenery. We’ll briefly dip onto Whidbey Island via Deception Pass with roads off the beaten WA-20 path then continue north with a leisurely, viewful loop of Samish Island. Tour ends with a mid-afternoon lunch in Edison. Edison features several local eateries, three pubs, several artisan galleries, and a most curious antiques shop. Special treat: the Breadfarm Bakery! A great winter tour with fun roads and great views as the first 2023 PNWR event! Prefer not to drive your Porsche? That's OK for these winter tours!
There are five options for lunch in Edison. There is no need to select a restaurant in advance, but you can review each at the links below. Note that they all offer takeout service if you prefer. Be thinking about which one you will choose because you may be asked prior to the tour date.
