Ventura, CA. to San Juan Islands; In Memory of Chris Road Trip

Jump to last reply

My sisters, seven year old niece & I are taking a 7 day road trip up to San Juan Islands & back. This trip was created for my niece & sister who lost their father & husband tragically this past April due to a DUI driver. My brother-in-law had plans to take his daughter on a long road-trip to the South to visit long lost relatives this summer. We do not have the time to do that trip so we decided to take them North/West instead. A lovely compromise I hope.

Our trip is June 28 to July 6-7.

My sister has always wanted to go to the San Juan Islands. She is looking into house rentals for 2 days. Somewhere peaceful.
Our goal is to "bomb" it up to Washington in 1 day maybe 2 if necessary. catch a ferry from Seattle to the Island? Ferry recommendations? We will have our own car.

Following the Island stay we planned to take our time going home. Day or 2 in Seattle, Portland etc.. We may stop in Humboldt to show my niece where dad went to college. We won't be camping & are looking for good but reasonable hotels/motels/ B&Bs. $100-$250 range/per night.
"Not To Miss" Food/Restaurants? We are all adventurous eaters.
Things to see or do for a seven year old?

My hope is to create a trip of memories & also help them heal even if it's just a bit.

Thank you in advance for the help/advice?
