Where to go near Seattle?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Seattle in late September and would like to also spend a couple of days outside of the city. Considering Mount Rainier, Olympic Peninsula (Hoh Rain Forest and surrounding area) or San Juan Islands.
Not sure if the San Juans would work because of effort getting to them and also am very prone to sea sickness, but perhaps ferry ride is fairly calm.
Looked into a place near Forks, called Huckleberry Lodge that sounded interesting and is not too far from Hoh forest.
We like to hike and see nature, not really into shopping. Would consider fishing for my husband and adult son also.
So, any suggestions on what might be a good place to go for a couple of days, preferably within 3 hours or so of Seattle, would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Annie
