Pacific Northwest Poll
In mid-April, Seth has a geography conference in Seattle. We have been planning that I will go with him and make a trip out of it as a belated anniversary celebration. We have friends in Seattle that we love and have offered to let us crash at their place so we will have a free place to stay while there for about 5 days. During that time, we will spend our days in Seattle or really close by since Seth will be back and forth to his meetings.
So I here is where I need your input. We will have 4-5 days ahead of time before we need to be in Seattle. The plan is to fly there and immediately head out of town. We have discussed the Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver loop by ferry and then train. Also, San Juan Islands, Portland and everywhere else close by. We don’t want to be totally rushed, but we don’t need much entertainment since we like to be outside, hike and also spend time wandering cities. I am happy to have a drink and people watch or climb a mountain. I’m not interested in spending my time in numerous museums, etc. We love public transit and walking and won’t have a car. Also, suggestions on places to stay and things to do in these places are welcome! How much is too much to fit into 4-5 days?
Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions? Don’t hold back. If you live there or have visited before, please bring on the input.
Thanks! Have a great night.
