My wife and I will be vacationing in Seattle the 2nd week of September, 2014. We have plans to take a flight on a seaplane out of Lake Union for sightseeing. My question is; would we be better off to take a long sightseeing flight (at a cost of about $800) to say Mt. Ranier, or would our time and money be better served if we took a short 20 minute sightseeing flight around Seattle (at $100/ea), and spend our time and money sightseeing by car. We will have a rental car, and will be staying on the Sound, in the Burien locale. We want to take in as much as we can in our week stay. We plan on a day trip to Vancouver, BC, and want to take a drive to the coast, one of the larger mountain ranges, and possibly a trip to the Columbia river. Any suggestions are welcome, as this will be our first time in Seattle.
Thank you in advance, Jerry
