Side trips/diversions I-90 Seattle to Great Falls, Montana

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be driving roundtrip Great Falls-Seattle in a week or two (long family story). The trip out we will probably drive as directly as possible (I-15 - I-90) though I see from AAA that there are several sections of construction that I need to look at more closely.

Once our business is done in Seattle we may be able to make the drive back more fun and do some sightseeing. I need to have options ready for either extra days near Seattle or along the route back to Great Falls. We love the outdoors with beautiful mountains and streams, also enjoy historical sights. Short hikes and other activities would be fun as we are very active, but not backpacking as we can't bring equipment.

We have been to Seattle area once and loved Mt Ranier for scenic and hiking, thought Mt Baker scenic, but less so Olympic. We didn't make it to Victoria and the forests on Vancouver Island or up to the ski resort area east of Seattle. If we stay out there for a couple of days, I am thinking of Vancouver Island or back to Ranier. Suggestions?

If we want to start back, but make a loop to somewhere different, I've looked at Mt Hood, which would add about 3 hours to the trip by picking up I-84. Suggestions?

The northern loop to go through North Cascades looks impractical as it would add so many driving hours on backroads. Correct interpretation?

A loop at the end might be to Glacier. We were there the year of the fires and thought it was great too.

Are there any other loops along the way you would suggest? Are there any sights you would suggest we get off I-90 and go see? Any suggested stops for meals, motels if we get tired?
