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!
