      Can any one tell me if it is still accessible to the public, and still there?
      Sounds really cool!

      Really Need Itinerary Suggestions!!!!

      by MartyAP Online Now Aug 21, 2013 at 11:06 AM

      Planning our first trip to the Pacific Northwest for next July and really need advice. We will most likely fly into SEA and return to NY from YVR. There are plenty of direct inbound flights to SEA and we can use FF miles for a return from YVR. We would like to experience some of the natural wonders of the Pacific NW in addition to our time in these beautiful cities.

      Here are two itineraries we have considered:

      1. Fly into SEA and stay 3/4 nights>Clipper to Victoria for 2 nights>Pacific Coast bus/ferry to Vancouver and stay 3/4 nights>home from YVR............... too many transfers for a 9/10 day trip????

      2. Fly into SEA and stay 4/5 nights (day trips to Mt. Rainier; Clipper to San Juan Islands)>SKIP Victoria>Amtrak Cascades to Vancouver and stay 4 nights>home from YVR

      We are not adverse to renting a car for day trips or using the many organized tours. Just not sure about an itinerary that will give us a good balance of city sites/nature sites/land/water. Have read that the Amtrak scenery to Vancouver is really nice; the Clipper to Victoria is nothing much; a day trip to San Juan does not allow much time to explore this island.......lots of pieces of info we're trying to put together........Open to any suggestions and help.

    • Combo travel Seattle to Victoria return

      by Lardycore60 Online Now Aug 13, 2013 at 9:26 PM

      How do you make reservations on the seaplane/ferry combination between Seattle and Victoria? I've tried Kenmore Air's site, and BC Clipper site with no luck. The ferry site only allows you to do the return trip by ferry both ways, and Kenmore Air's site isn't much help. I want to travel Seattle to Victoria on the ferry, and return next day via seaplane in December. Can anyone help please?

      Driving from Seattle to Mt. St. Helen's - would you recommend it?

      by sweet_sentiments Online Now Jun 28, 2013 at 2:44 PM


      My husband and I booked a tour from Evergreen for a full day trip to Mt. St. Helens departing from Seattle for July but they just cancelled on us. So disappointed. We looked at other travel sites that offer the same tour but it looks like all of them are just getting the tour from Evergreen, not really sure but the description looks like straight from Evergreen.

      Anyway, now we're thinking if we should just rent a car and drive to Mt. St. helen's ourselves but we don't know what the road condition would be. It's summer so we don't have to worry about snow but I'm worried about what kind of road are we going to drive to. Is it hilly, dirt road, by the side of the mountains with cliff.

      So our questions are:

      1. Would you recommend that we drive to Mt. St. Helens from Seattle (we're staying in downtown Seattle) or should we just stay in Seattle and do Mt. Rainier instead? We just want to do a day trip.

      2. Do you think we can survive doing that long drive, do the Mt. St Helen's tour (not sure how much hiking is needed) then drive back to Seattle? Or is that suicide, lol. Staying overnight in Portland is not an option for us, unfortunately.

      3. Is there any other travel agency who offers Mt. St. Helen's tour departing from Seattle?

      Thanks in advance!

      Can I get a couple suggestions of restaurants (not a bar or lounge) that is on a high floor of the building and that affords a nice view of the Space Needle? Long time ago, I stayed at a hotel near the Camlin and there was a cafe high up where we ate breakfast that we had a nice view of the Space Needle. Going to Seattle next week, need some supper ideas. Also need directions by public transit from Seatac to Kerry Park Viewpoint. I can get the LRT to downtown and then? Want some sunset shots there (amongst everyone else, hey? ha ha)

      I'm coming to Seattle in mid-July and I have never been there but I would just like to find a simple boat tour of the famous Sound. Afternoon/Evening preferred. I don't need luxuries, I just want to be on the water and in a boat small enough to get a good perspective of the terrain. If its possible to get close to any animal/wildlife/bird photo ops, or if there is a stop somewhere for this purpose that would be great too.

      2. Where should be the 1st place to visit?
      3. Any other recommended places to fit with my plan?

So, I am looking for transportation suggestions from train station to Seatac and any other ideas about what to do until time to check in for flights.
