Please help with trip planning for Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver

Jump to last reply

Please help me to plan this trip. My son (19 years old), husband and me are planning to visit Pacific Northwest for the first time for about 10 days in the first part of August from NJ.
After looking in various ideas, etc, I was thinking about visiting Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver, Whistler. See nice towns, one or two museums, some nature.
Please help me with logistics. We can fly NJ to Seattle and back. Round trip is about $100 per person cheaper, but then we have to get back to Seattle from Vancouver or we can pay more and fly to Vancouver and back home from Seattle.
We will not have a car all the time, but will rent for a few trips.
While in Seattle I hope to spend one day in Mount Rainier, so we will rent a car for that day. And because weather could be unpredictable I probably have to be in Seattle for 3 days, so if there is rain one day we can go to mountain another day.
I plan to get to Victoria from Seattle probably by Clipper Ferry, which is kind of expensive ($100 per person), but other options not easy. Stay in Victoria at least one night and visit downtown and Botanical garden, maybe see whales if we have time.
From Victoria get to Vancouver by bus and Ferry, which for whatever reason is much cheaper. Stay in Vancouver for a few days, then rent a car and drive to Whistler and stay there at least one night.
After that return to Vancouver and fly home or get to Seattle for flight home. Which is kind of problem with driving and bother crossing or train, which also leaves either very early in the morning or too late for my flight.
I didn't book flight yet because not sure how many days should I do. Original plan was around 10 days, so is my itinerary look reasonable? And also should I forget the idea to go back to Seattle and just fly from Vancouver?
Thank you very much for help!
Mariya
