This was actually 2 trips within the past month. Our daughter took some college classes this summer and my wife teaches and our school started here in Oklahoma on Aug 3, so their schedules didn't work out.

My favorite things were

Mount Rainier
Hurricane Ridge
Rialto Beach hike to Hole in the Wall (far better than Ruby Beach--IMOP)
Sol Duc Falls
Whale Watching

Cascade Pass Trail in North Cascades wasn't as good as I had expected it to be (still nice though).

Dahlia Bakery, Salumi, Top Pot Doughnuts, Cafe Vivace were all fantastic.

Visited Pike Market twice. With my wife it was nice on a Monday. With my daughter it was really crowded on a Saturday. Interesting to see it from both perspectives.

Weather was great except for one day in Seattle.
I must say I really liked Seatac.
I think the Seattle airport has the great views and really good places to eat.
