Coupeville is Washington State's second-oldest community and much of downtown harkens back to an era of more than a century ago. Hundred year old buildings tht were once livery stables and barber shops are now wine tasting rooms and bookstores. There are also restaurants and small shops all along Front Street.
Coupeville sits along the shores of Penn Cove, with its famous wharf that juts out into the water from Front Street.
The wharf’s iconic red building is a must-visit spot in Coupeville. The Island County Museum is a good place to learn about the Island’s early history.
