With all the wonderful help and information I have received in the past few months, I have finally come up with a finalized intinerary for our two week trip coming up. Please give me your insight and opinion on what is planned.
Day 1 - Newark to San Francisco, land 10:30 am
Shuttle to Hotel Vitale, possible ferry to Sausalito for lunch, 6:05 Giants Game
Day 2 - Pick up Rental Car, if didn't go to Sausalito on Day 1, will go for breakfast and then A's 1:05 game
After game, drive to Garberville (Best Western Humboldt House) for the night
Day 3-Drive through the Redwoods to Gold Beach
If early enough, Riverboat tours on the Rouge
Tu Tu Tun Lodge
Day 4 - Drive to Florence, Dune Buggie and Lunch
Off to Yachats for the night at Overleaf Lodge
Day 5 - There has been different advice on which roads to take to Portland so we will decide when we get there, but probably will head up to Lincoln City and cut across, I know it's been mentioned there is a lot of traffic in that area. Hotel Monaco for the night, walk around the city, dinner. . .
Day 6 - Eco Tours of Mt. Hood and area
Day 7 - Drive to Mr. St. Helen's, Drive to Seattle
Day 8 - Space Needle, Pike's Place, walk around city
Mariner's night game, Seattle Sheraton (how far is the stadium from the Sheraton and is it walkable)
Day 9 Drive to Port Angeles (probably via the Bainbridge Ferry) drop off luggage at Olympic Lodge and then head to Hurricane Ridge, back to Port Angeles for the night
Day 10 Catch 8:20 ferry to Victoria (once we dock in Victoria, how far to Fairmont Empress) Inner Harbor, possibly Butchart Gardens (my boys are 16 and 12, not sure if they will have interest)
Day 11 - Whale Watching (not sure who to book with and should I book in advance)
Day 12 - Ferry to Vancouver at 7:00 (how long is drive to Westin Bayshore) Granville Island and Stanley Park
Day 13 - Capilano Bridge, Grouse Mountain
Day 14 - Drive to Seattle, stopping at the Boeing Factory (What would be a good time to leave Vancouver to have the least wait at the border, this is a Friday) From the Boeing Factory head to Silver Cloud Stadium hotel and then a Mariner's night game
Day 15 - Fly back to Newark (how far is airport from hotel)
Also, as of now, do you know what the exchange rate is and can we use US Dollars if we wanted to. Still have to firm up which restaurants to go do. I have some things written down. My sons birthday falls on one of the days we will be in Vancouver and would like to find a fun, different place to take him.
Any input would be appreciated.
