We will be in Seattle for a period of 3 weeks from early April, with two children aged 5 & 7. We will spend our weekdays in Seattle, getting to know the City.
We then plan to take two separate trips out of the city (leaving Thurs pm or Fri am through to Sun evening). We are considering locations close to Seattle but also plane journeys under 2 hours.
We have never been to America before and are looking for some ideas. Some of the options we are considering:
A short stay in a National Park (eg cabin, safe, short -1hr treks)
Skiing (if such an option exists, family friendly)
Whale watching trip
Any (positive) opinion on best of list or other options would be great, please!
