Input about Seattle area trip (and possibly Oregon)

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Seattle area at the end of August and beginning of September and could use some insight about the itinerary. We will have 14 days as mapped out below, (but arrive in the evening and leave around noon, so really 12 full days) and I am having a little difficulty figuring out how much time is appropriate in each place, how much driving I may end up doing (I don't want to spend the vacation in the car) and also whether we should consider a quick visit to Portland or part of Oregon. We will be flying in and out of Sea-Tac.

We enjoy general sightseeing, short-moderate day hikes, etc. My wife is also interested in Dale Chihuly's glass work, so a visit to the Gardens in Seattle and to the Tacoma museums are on the agenda. We have never been to Seattle, but have visited Vancouver and Victoria, so we will skip that this time to give us some more time in other locations. I would like to make as few hotel changes as is reasonably possible, but everything is so spread out, I'm not sure that is very realistic. This is the tentative (very rough) plan for now and I would appreciate any input about this and to help crystalize specifics about timing, places to visit and where to stay along the way.

Day 1 - Arrive in Seattle in PM. Stay either close to Airport or in Seattle.
Day 2 -- Seattle
Day 3 - Seattle
Day 4 - Pick up rental car, drive from Seattle to Anacortes, leave car and take ferry as foot passenger to San Juan Islands
Day 5 - San Juan Islands
Day 6 - Ferry back to Anacortes, drive and take Coupeville Ferry to Port Townsend. (How long will this take? Will there be time to explore Port Townsend?) Stay in Port Townsend.
Day 7 Olympic Peninsula (North Olympic National Park?)-- Not sure where to stay and how much is possible to see over next couple of days.
Day 8 Olympic Peninsula (West Olympic National Park?)
Day 9 Mount Rainier (where to stay?)
Day 10 Mount St Helens? Portland?
Day 11 ??
Day 12 Tacoma
Day 13 Tacoma back to Seattle
Day 14 Fly home

Many thanks for any help.
