Pacific Northwest Trip Itineraries

Falling in love with the San Juan Islands

Destination(s): Seattle

The San Juan Islands are geologically distinct from the rest of the region and its climate is drier and sunnier so a* a result the landscape looks like little chunks of Northern California slipping out of the deep blue channels and sparkling bays. The southwest sides of the Islands are much hotter and drier than the north ea*t slopes and a* you pa** through the Islands on the ferry you can snap some pretty fabulous pictures. The Islands are popular during the summer but if you plan ahead you'll barely notice. The biggest hurdle is the ferry so you'll want to plan to stay in Seattle the day you arrive and get up with the sun to beat the traffic. read more about Falling in love with the San Juan Islands

If you only have one day in Seattle, head downtown to get a real taste of the city in every sense. From fresh cheese curds at Beecher's to chowder at Pike Place Chowder, from necklaces and bags to hand-stitched leather journals and hats, from accordions to pianos to hula-hooping guitarists – there's something for your eyes, ears, and nose everywhere you look at the market.

If you're considering hopping over to Bainbridge, Bremerton, Mercer or any of Seattle's interesting islands, a peaceful ferry ride is a far cry from sitting on a bridge in traffic.
