Will be arriving for first time visit 7-26 9 a.m. , leaving 7-29 9 a.m. We definitely want to do a scenic drive. Anacortes was highly recommended by friends. Of course Pikes Market and other downtown places. My question is, should we book a hotel exclusively in Seattle or maybe one night in Anacortes. I understand it's only an 1.5 hour to 2 hour drive. But we do like to pull off the road and take pictures, wander in interesting places.
The other question: Boyfirend wants to go to air museum. I've been to many with him. I'm good for about 45 minutes and he will want to spend hours. Is there anything nearby - shopping, intertesting places - I could slip off to? We will have a car. Thanks for any help.
