3 week loop trip from Seattle/Vancouver/Banff NP/Glacier NP/Seattle

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in our 60's and finally can carve out 3 weeks for a trip. We are coming from Philadelphia and flying into and back from Seattle. Our initial itinerary is:

3 nights in Seattle

3 nights in Vancouver --- where to stay?

Drive to Kelowna on our way to Banff and spend one or two nights for the wineries

Drive from there to Banff and spend two nights --- where to stay?
While there drive up towards Jasper

Drive to Glacier NP for 4 nights (already booked at Many Glacier Hotel)
Plan on visiting Waterton Lake NP as a day trip (afternoon tea at the Prince of Wales Hotel?)

Drive to Placid Lake, Montana, where we stay with a friend for 5 nights (so lucky)

Then head back to Seattle, maybe visiting the wine area in Walla Walla or Yakima on the way back (I know it'll take two days to drive back)

We are doing this in mid-August and have never been in this area before. Any recommendations places to see or stay or general comments on our itinerary are very welcome! We aren't planning on renting a car until we leave Seattle for Vancouver.

Trying to find a great and not overly expensive place in both Seattle and Vancouver. Do I have too many days in Seattle where it would make more sense to add a day somewhere else? What else should I change?

I've also posted this in the US Forum, as suggested.
