Senic route from Portland Oregon to Seattle Washington

I will be flying into Portland June 2 and will stay there 2 nights and one night at Arch Cape on the coast. I would like a senic route to Seattle Washington. Also some things to see in Portland would be nice.

Thanks

The scenic route would be US 101 on the coast.

Astoria to Aberdeen on 101: not so scenic unless third-growth Weyerhaueser land floats your boat.

Aberdeen to Port Angeles to Seattle: much better.

As a member of the Pacific County, Washington historical society, it pains me to say that, but the recent clearcuts near Palix have totally ruined that drive for me.

Thanks for the information on the senic drive to Seattle. Just thought it would be nice to see something besides the Interstate.

Thanks
