Seattle , and how to pick best island to visit

Jump to last reply

We will be vacationing in Seattle,WA in September. We are planning on starting our trip in Seattle for the weekend to take on the sites there, thinking of staying downtown without renting a car as I've heard there is a high parking daily cost at the downtown hotels, and there is good public transportation. Any hotel suggestions within a few blocks from Pikes Market?
Monday we would like to rent a car (if needed) and drive up to the ferry to take us to the island for a few days. Now here's the Big Question? If you could only visit One island for two-three days, which would you pick? We can stay in a hotel or rent a house. We'd love to go whale watching, and just do some relaxing site seeing. Scenery is a biggie. So...Victoria Island, Whidbey Island, Orcas Island, Bainbridge??? PLEASE Help!!!
Thought we'd take in Mt Rainier, and Olympic National Park the next two days, then fly home Friday.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
