Tourism: Oak Harbor's just like everywhere else

I cannot believe that any tourist would want to leave the city with its stop lights, traffic jams, used car lots and fast food joints and drive all the way to Oak Harbor to vacation with stop lights, traffic jams, used car lots, and fast food joints. Tourists go to Coupeville or Langley where there are no stop lights, traffic jams, used car lots or fast food joints. Let's just forget the tourism business and concentrate on something that has a chance in the future.
