Seattle and rest of Washington state roadtrip - on a shoestring budget

Jump to last reply

We are flying in to Seattle, mid August. We have 3.5 days scheduled for sightseeing in Seattle and around, before we start our roadtrip, with the end destination being Minneapolis, 2 weeks later.

We have decided to see the following:
Space Needle, Boeiing Factory, Pike Place Market, Mt St Helen, Mt Raineer, tour of the old burried city. Is there anything else which we must NOT miss? Then good ideas for places to ea on a tight budget?

As our hearts desires is to see the beautifull nature of the US, we are planning to start our roadtrip driving north to the North Cascades National Park, on all the scenic routes to Spokane.We need to sleep over for one night on our trip to Spokane. Any awsome suggestions? And which towns are a MUST to stop at? Good places to eat along our road? We are camping, so no need for hotels etc, a cheap log cabin would be a real blessing though.

What is the weather like in Washington State mid August? I have no clue what clothes to pack.

We want to see all we can... we want to experience it all, your help would be much appreciated!
