Help with potential trip to Seattle and surrounding areas

Jump to last reply

My husband and I, along with our (then) 3.5 year old twin girls, are contemplating a trip to WA for late April or May. We would be flying into SEA and from there I'm totally confused. We would have roughly a week for this trip, and neither of us have ever been to this area before.

We are interested in visiting Seattle, but for the most part we are outdoorsy people who enjoy beautiful scenery and all it has to offer. My confusion is where to target my research because it all looks beautiful. We are interested in Olympic National Park, Mt. Rainier area, the islands in Puget Sound...pretty much a huge circle within a few hours north/south of Seattle. I know we can't do all of it, nor do I want to try. I would prefer to either base ourselves in one place for the entire week (perhaps renting a house through VRBO) and daytrip OR break it up into a 4/5 night stay in one scenic location and 2/3 nights in Seattle.

Is there one location that would give us the beautiful scenery we desire and still have relatively easy access to Seattle? Or should I break up the trip? And if so, where is a good base? With two little ones in tow our days will probably be spent sightseeing, some light hiking and things like that. No kayaking or long hikes with a couple of three year olds! :) Is there enough to do in Olympic National Park to keep us occupied for 4-5 days, or would the Mt. Rainier area be better? Or do we choose one of the islands?

Decisions decisions! I'm waiting for my official WA travel guide to come in, and I've done some internet research but I'm still confused.

Thanks!!
Tracy
