Itinerary for Seattle, Vancouver, Olympic & Rainier National Parks in July

Jump to last reply

We are getting ready to finish our plans to Pacific Northwest next month.

This is what we have planned:

Arrive in Seattle Sunday afternoon 2pm.
Day 1 & 2 Stay in Seattle
We don't have lodging yet for Seattle. We will have a rental car; should we stay downtown and walk around the waterfront, etc.
We would like to see Pikes Market. Wold also like to take a ferry ride--looking for suggestions.

Drive to Vancouver
Day 3, 4, & 5 Stay in Vancouver
In Vancouver, we plan to do the Sea to Sky highway, see downtown, Harbour Centre, Stanley Park, Capilano Suspension bridge, Grouse Mountain, and maybe Marine Drive

Drive to Olympic NP
Day 6 & 7 Stay Lake Crescent Lodge, Olympic NP
In ONP we plan to see Hurricane Ridge, Ruby Beach, Sul Doc Trai and Rialto Beach

Sunday--Week 2 --Drive south towards Portand
This day is flexible. We want to take our time along the coast but do not think we have enough time to see any of the beach towns in Oregon.
Day 8 ---stay ??

.
Day 9 & 10 --Drive to Hood River-Stay 2 nights in Hood River
Lots to do in Hood river area. We plan to see some of the waterfalls, Oneonta Gorge, and take some of the scenic drives

Day 11 & 12 - Drive to Mount Rainier NP-- Stay 2 nights at Paradise Inn, MRNP
Plan to do some moderate hikes, enjoy the scenery

Day 13 - Friday afternoon --drive back to Seattle area
Spend night near airport; catch early morning flight the next day

We are seniors who enjoy seeing beautiful scenery and moderate hikes.

We have a little flexibility at the beginning of the trip but once we get to ONP, we will keep to the plan.

Thanks for any suggestions or comments.
