First Time to Seattle-Portland-Willamette Valley

Jump to last reply

Hello,
My husband & I (60yr old) are spending 8 nights in this area in Sept., for the first time.
Interested in hitting typical tourist must-sees, scenery, light walking, nice restaurants, wineries.

I would welcome & appreciate feedback on this general plan:
-arrive 9pm Sat. Seattle airport
-(I am thinking) 2 full days, Sun-Mon, in Seattle.
While there: Chihuly, Pike Pl Mkt, Space Needle, possibly ferry to Bainbridge Island, Chittenden Locks...???
-Tues Amtrak to Portland
-2 full days, Wed-Thurs, in Portland. While there: Columba River Gorge, Pacific coast...???
-Fri morning travel to Willamette V, for Fri-Sat
-Sun. 3pm flt from Portland

A few more questions:
-Car needed in Seattle or Portland? Central location/area to stay in? Lodging rec? (3-4 stars out of 4, for price & quality purposes.)
-Current opinion on Seattle-Portland Amtrak trip? Also, is there a better place to sit for views?
-I assume (?) we need a car to get from Portland to Willamette area, and then to use while there....true? How long a drive is it?
-Central location to stay in Willamette Valley, & lodging suggestions. (3-4 stars out of 4, for price & quality purposes.)

Thank you in advance for any input. Fodors people always amaze me.
-MJ
