Which neighborhoods in Seattle would be convenient for stopovers on the way to Port Angeles? (I'm thinking about trying to minimize getting snarled in traffic, and getting lost?) We'd also like to maximize fun!
Our flight arrives in Seattle airport at dinner time on a week night. We'll want an interesting dinner, preferably in a locally owned eatery with tasty ethnic food, not in a boring chain restaurant. Then the next morning we'll head in our rental car for Port Angeles.
After spending 3 nights in Port Angeles area and then 2 nights near Forks, we'll drive back to Seattle and will need another overnite. Once again we'll hope to have dinner in a locally owned restaurant with interesting ethinic food, not in a boring chain. We might have time to have a walk in an interesting part of Seattle.
I've had a look on-line but Seattle looks complicated. Not sure where to stay. These neighborhoods sound interesting to me:
Madrona, Queen Anne, Ballard, Fremont, Greenlake, and West Seattle. (judging from reading the tripadvisor article.)
But I'm not sure which neighborhoods would be convenient as far as our driving plans? (Arrive at airport; spend 1 night in Seattle; then drive to Port Angeles the next morning. Then, at end of trip, drive from Forks to Seattle, spend 1 night, then fly home.
Thanks for any tips about which areas would be convenient for us to stay in. Generally, my first requirement of a hotel or b&b is a quiet night's sleep!
We ate at a fantastic Ethiopian restaurant in Washington DC! Haven't had any terrific Ethiopian food since then. We love trying different kinds of food. Looking forward to our first trip to Washington.
