16 days multi city trip: SF, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver

Hi There :)

I'd really appreciate your help in planning a 16 days (net) multi-city trip for San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver.

Mainly how much time for each city (16 days net, including city transfers) and preferred transportation between them

My plan so far:

- Arriving SF at Sep 17 morning

- SF to Portland by internal flight

- Portland to Seattle by train

- Seattle to Vancouver by train

- Departing Vancouver at Oct 2 night

My preferences are:

- Exploring a city by walking it, feel the neighborhoods

- No sightseeing / tourist attractions

- I like bars and vegetarian restaurants

- Less road tripping and more about the city themselves (I know I miss a lot, but I think I'll keep it for a future trip)

Also, in order to get the complete picture, and according to tripadvisor professionals, I’ll post this on each of the 4 cities:

SF - tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g60713-i30-k684634…

Portland - tripadvisor.com/…52847532

I know it's a little late for asking, so thanks a lot in advance!!

Pango

I think it sounds like a great trip. You really don't need much more information, you've already got it planned :) Just knowing you'll have 3 days per city (subtracting a day for getting between each one). Just book central downtown hotels in each city, get the public transportation and walking information for neighborhoods, and you've got it planned.

I'll speak for Seattle but vegetarian restaurants and bars are easy to find! In Seattle you can easily see Pioneer Square (historic district), downtown, Belltown, Queen Anne and Capitol Hill (the last two beautiful residential areas) in a few days. Head to Volunteer Park on the #10 bus one day, then walk your way back downtown along 15th Ave East or Broadway, for a peak at my own neighborhood.

I would like to know how your trip went, how much it cost and if you bought a train pass or just point to point tickets etc.
