Hey guys, I am using my miles to take a trip to seattle (from miami) with my wife and have a few questions for anybody with knowledge of the area.
1-weather-is there a great difference between august (the earliest I can go with my miles) and october (the wife's birthday!)? It seems that it would be a bit cooler and more likely to rain based on my research. But how significantly different is it "on average"?
2-Currently, I am looking at 3.75 days in seattle. If we exclude all museums and aquariums (not our favorite) what would be the best way to spend those days? We like outdoors stuff, ie strolling though downtown, exploring islands, bar hopping, unique restaurants, etc. I've been told that 2 days is enough for seattle proper, which leads me to my next question...
3-What are the realistic and exciting day trips? For example, Portland is only 2.5 hours away on the google maps, and vancouver only 4 hours by train, but are those even worth considering? I would think those cities deserve at least a night or two. If so, then what do most people do? Victoria, San Juan islands, Mt Rainier etc?
Thanks in advance for your help.
