Trip With Teenager

Jump to last reply

My husband and I would like to take our 16-year-old grandson on a trip this summer in either June or July. We are looking at options, so I thought I'd put out the question to the rest of you. We had thought of flying into Seattle, taking the ferry over to Victoria, the ferry from there to Vancouver and then drive back to Seattle for our flight home. We would be flying from Louisville, Kentucky to Seattle.
We've taken two other grandchildren on trips, one to Yellowstone and the other to Glacier. We want to do something different with this grandson.
As I look at this possible itinerary, it seems to me that since we have only a Thursday to a Thursday, most of the days will be travel days (two flight days, two ferry trips and a drive back to Seattle) with only one full day each in Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver.
What do you think about this itinerary? Any other suggestions? We are just in the planning stages now, so we can make minor or major changes. We are open to anywhere in the U. S. and Canada, but we'd prefer North rather than South during the summer months.
