    • Feedback/Suggestions needed for Portland/Seattle Trip

      by kellyandbrian Online Now Jul 21, 2016 at 1:49 PM

      The plan is to fly into Portland or Seattle and fly out of the other city.
      We will rent a car and want to definitely see the highlights that are most reasonable given our time constraints.
      I've heard the Oregon coast is amazing. Also heard about the hiking in the gorge!
      As for Washington - I know the winery Chateau St Michelle is nearby - that may be more doable.
      My boyfriend has never been to Seattle so I want him to see the market etc.
      But I would also love to see some of the whales and not sure if trying to squeeze in any of the islands is worth it or reasonable.
      We are foodies and hope to experience the each city for atleast a day a half plus some excursions.
      Any suggestions you can offer about routes to take - things to see and do and or a reasonable itinerary for 7 days is awesome. We don't want to come home exhausted but we also aren't afraid to pack a lot into a day and want some unique experiences that we can't have in other states!
      Thank you!

      My wife and I are visiting Seattle in August. We are looking for a combination of romantic and outdoors activities. We are landing on a Tues mid afternoon and flying out early Sunday morning. We were thinking of spending the rest of Tues thru Thurs AM seeing the city. We already know we want to sea kayak in the San Juan's for sure and stay there that night. The problem lies in figuring out how to spend the last 2 days. Olympic, Ranier, Northern Cascades, and driving down to Columbia River Gorge are the ideas that interest us. However, we obviously won't have time for all. So we are trying to figure out the most efficient way to go to see the most possible and most convenient route or order to drive. Any opinions between those 4 wilderness areas are can't miss more than the others? Also curious if it's easier just to get a car for the whole trip or just Thurs morning to save on 2 days rental. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
