Northern Idaho Road Trip

Jump to last reply

Hi...My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids, aged 15, 13, and 11) are traveling to Spirit Lake Idaho for a week at a lake house the first week of July. I would like to add some other Northwestern travels to our agenda on the front end of our trip. Perhaps an additional 4-5 days in either Seattle or Glacier National Park.

If we fly into Seattle we see some of the sights there (including perhaps, Bainbridge or Whidbey Islands or San Juan Islands) for a few days and then drive the five hours to Spirit Lake. Question: What are some recommended sights to see with teenage kid? Also, is there anything to see or a specific scenic route you can recommend from Seattle to Spirit Lake (basically near Coeur d Alane)?

If we go into Glacier Natl Park my questions are...where would we fly into if we want to start at the east side of the park and drive west? What are my chances of driving the entire Going to the Sun Road? Suggestions for Lodging? Any other must see sights if we were to be in the area for 3-5 days prior to going to Coeur d Alane? Not sure if the last week of June is very ideal for Glacier which makes me wonder if Seattle would be better.

Would love some feedback on these two alternatives or any others you might suggest...
