please advise on my Seattle-Vancouver itinerary

Jump to last reply

Please advise if this is a good and doable itinerary. Any input will be appreciated!

2 adults+ 1 teenager
We are planning to rent a car, also contemplating a combination of Amtrak and a car.

July 22 - flying to Seattle in the afternoon
July 23 - sightseeing Seattle: the Waterfront with Olympic Sculpture Park,
Pioneer Square , Pike Place Market, boat tour on Lake Union.
July 24 -July 25 - day trip to Mt. Rainier National Park with staying overnight (any good hotels or B&B's up to $200/night ?)
July 25 - heading back to Seattle and taking Victoria Clipper to a day trip to San Juan Island (Friday Harbor and Lime Kiln Park), then staying overnight in Seattle
July 26 - riding Amtrak to Vancouver or driving to Vancouver, spending the night in Vancouver
July 27 - sightseeing in Vancouver: downtown, Stanley Park Seawall, Granville Island, Kitsilano
July 28 - Capilano Suspension Bridge (North Vancouver) and Skyride gondola to Grouse Mountain, possibly staying overnight in that area (any good hotels or B&B's, up to $200/night ?)
July 29 - day trip to Whistler (should we stay overnight there, if so any good hotels or B&B's up to $200/night ?)
July 30 - day trip to Victoria, Butchart Gardens, etc
July 31 - Amtrak or driving back to Seattle, staying overnight in some airport hotel
August 1 - flying home

What are most conveniently located areas to stay overnight in Seattle and Vancouver?
Thanks in advance for your help!
