When in Seattle; take a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island. Take a stroll, have a bite to eat, enjoy the City Views coming back.

Anacortes/San Juan will not disappoint. It's 1.5 hours of serene beauty. It's at least a day trip. One can easily spend a week and not tire of the beauty of the San Juan islands. It's best to make reservations via the WSF... More
