8 days in Seattle, San Juan Islands, Olympic National help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello, My husband and I are headed out to Washington state from 7/6-7/14. We're thinking of visiting Seattle, San Juan Islands and Olympic National Park.

I was thinking of maybe the following itinerary:
Arrive in Seattle 7/6
7/6-7/8 in Seattle (I will have several days before this that I will be there myself to check things out)
7/9-7/11 in the San Juan Islands
7/12-7/13 in Olympic National Park
7/14 - fly out

I'd like to hear the thoughts of those from this area or who have been there if this itinerary is realistic.

A couple of items I'm having a hard time finding. Whats the best way to get from the San Juan Islands to Olympic National Park? How long should we plan for this to take?

Would you recommend San Juan Islands or Whidbey Island? We love scenery, nature, and small towns quaint towns with cute little local shops.

Anything else major that we're missing or that you think we should change?

Thanks a ton for your help!
