I will be in the Pacific Northwest from Thursday 6/6-Saturday 6/15. It will be my husband and I with two younger children (3 & 8).I am planning the first 3 nights in Seattle and then on Sunday get a rental car and drive to Anacortes to take the Ferry to the San Juan islands. I am leaning toward Orcas - just because of Mt. Constitution and the West Beach Resort. However if the inter-island ferry is a pain I would be willing to stay in Friday Harbor. I am open to one or two nights in the San Juans. My kids aren't going to do long hikes, but car and walking tours work. I am also debating if my 3 year old would enjoy the whale watching tours or if it would be torture being trapped on a boat. Can you see whales from the beaches? Do the Ferry's see whales? Are the Ferry's easy enough during mid-week with a car? From the San Juans we will head back to Anacortes and drive to Whistler, Vancouver and back to Seattle.
