trip to Seattle and Anacortes June 15-June 22

Planning trip to Seattle and Anacortes - arriving early the 15th and staying for 4 nights at Aliki Beach - using water taxi and public transportation to take in a Mariners game, do the Seattle tourist stuff, i.e. Pike's Place, Museum of Flight, Space Needle, and possibly Snoqualm Falls and River Valley, then off to Anacortes for whale watching and a possible trip to Vancouver. Had planned to go by car but after reading posts about the wait at the border, wondered if there was a better way from Anacortes to Vancouver or Victoria. It seems there are several choices from Seattle so wasn't sure if we should go from there but we might be back tracking. Thoughts on travel to Vancouver, any other things not to miss in Seattle ( wine tours?) and restaurants with a local flavor ( Had read about Local 360) but interested in others you feel we shouldn't miss - Thanks!

Please see my response in your other post. It would be best if you could focus on one and remove the other, or we'll be talking at cross purposes and risk cross talk and redundancy.

Add to your list:

Ballard/Chittenden Locks Uniquely Seattle


Once you create an itinerary, not just a list of things to do/to see, we can better advise and you'll have an idea of how much you can do in what appears to be less than 7 days.

Yes, we can help with an itinerary. The article I provided covers the region; your Seattle area choices are good.

its easy logistically to go fromAnacortes to Sydney and then into Victoria. Also very easy to get to Vancouver and back to Seattle on Amtrak.


also read article on top right re: trips to Vanc and Victoria. Is there a reson you picked Anacortes?
