From my favorite Ramen and Sake Speakeasy in Omaha to my favorite Yoga Studio in Austin, eventually, the towns we "Remain Over Night" (R.O.N} become my homes away from home. So, whether your driving through a town or you're on a long layover between flights or you're a lucky flight attendant, like me. A Ron is my quick guides to some of my favorite cities! First up Edmunds, Washington
Layover 17.23
We landed at 11:30 a.m. at the Paine Field Airport. It's brand new, privately owned and the coziest terminal I have ever seen. With two gas fireplaces hugging the center of the terminal and rocking chairs situated in front of the window it's not a bad spot to sip a cocktail while you're waiting for your flight. We headed towards baggage claim and there was so much attention to detail I have to say I was impressed! Once we got to our hotel, I quickly unpacked my bags, changed out of my uniform and ordered my Uber to the cute town of Edmunds Washington.
Brunch: Salt ad Iron: order a few Peach Mimosas at the bar and choose any dish off their menu. Seriously everything came highly recommended and you will not be disappointed. 

Oysters Benedict
If you're there on a Saturday after brunch head over to Artisa for free wine tasting. Or go to Resident Cheesemonger to pick up your favorite cheese and then head over to Artisa to find the perfect pairing. If you're not into wine or cheese, there are plenty of shops to explore and windows to shop. But before you get too swept up in this cute town make sure to check the ferry schedule to Kingston and choose a time. Whatever time you decide, make sure to be at the ferry terminal at least 20 minutes before departure. The ferry takes 30 minutes and will cost you just $8.75 for the round trip. You can buy some wine and enjoy the view or take a crack at one of the puzzles inside. If you're lucky to be in Kingston on a night they are playing live music in the park, I would suggest grabbing a crepe from J'aime Les Crepes Creperie and settling in for an hour or two. Feeling adventurous? Head to Mossback. "The little green house behind the bushes" opens at 4pm and while their craft cocktails are plenty their food items are few due to their seasonal and local approach. I suggest going for drinks and appetizers. And if nothing else try a buzz button. It's an edible flower bud that makes your mouth tingle and tastebuds explode in a good way.

For dinner, I would recommend the Kingston alehouse. From crab-stuffed mushrooms to burgers they have something for everyone. And if you haven't already I highly suggest spending the money on a crepe and walking around town before heading back on the ferry. Once you get back to Edmunds go grab a nightcap at Daphne's. The bartenders and locals are a hoot to hang out with.
