Seattle & Portland in late October

Jump to last reply

I have 7-8 days to spend visiting these two cities later this month or places nearby? Am researching threads here now for ideas, but thought I'd throw out a couple of questions. Any and all advice appreciated.

How would you split the time between the two cities? We were in Seattle for 5 days last autumn and loved it enough to want to visit again. Haven't been to Portland in 20 years.

Will or can have a car. Didn't need one in Seattle but had access to one the day we went to Bellevue.

My interests are the arts, history, quirky places and markets, book and paper stores, and sports. Love National and State Parks -- light hikes and walking but we're not super outdoorsy.

Love good food but wouldn't consider myself a foodie. Love coffee. Wine.

We are Kimpton hotel fans. Stayed last year at the Seattle Monaco (loved it) and the Vintage Park (least favorite Kimpton experience). Anyone have thoughts on the Alexis? Anyone know the Portland Kimptons -- Monaco, Vintage Plaza or River Place? Might one be better located for seeing Portland?

Again, thank you for any input!
