We are planning our first trip to the Seattle area this October and in putting together our itinerary would love to get some of your expert advise.
We have five days/six nights in the area. We are arriving late Wed. night, 10/21 into Seattle. I was thinking we would stay downtown (maybe the Silver Cloud Inn?) for two nights and do the "without a car" type itinerary.
Then we were wanting to go to Anacortes for Friday night and walk onto the ferry to tour Friday Harbor and spend Saturday night in Victoria (any hotel suggestions there?) We plan to have a rental car, but if we park it at Anacortes we will have to return there and we would like to experience more of the area, like to Port Angeles or any other suggestion? Is there another option for transportation from Seattle to Anacortes without a rental car...not a big deal, just trying to get the most out of our time.
Also, if we are walking on the ferry can you help with how to handle luggage, etc. while touring Friday Harbor?
We will be touring the ONP area or maybe Whidbey Island. We need a suggestion for Sunday & Monday night...where to stay, what we shouldn't miss, etc. We leave Tuesday at noon.
We can do any of the above in any order, as we have not booked hotel reservations. Any suggestions would be appreciated! I have already learned so much from your previous posts.
