The Pacific Northwest
September 21-28, 2002
- Vancouver, British Columbia
- Seattle, Washington
- Bainbridge Island & the Olympic Peninsula
- The Tri-Cities (Richland, Kennewick & Pasco, Washington)
- The Atrium Inn, Vancouver, BC
Good location, reasonable rates, excellent room service, and a full English breakfast.
- Stanley Park, Vancouver BC
Clean, free, beautiful. Home of several worthwhile sights including the Vancouver Aquarium.
- Araya's Vegan Thai Restaurant, on "The Ave", Seattle
For those of us who want to visit the Vegan world, but not live there.
- Pike's Place Market, Seattle
Flying fish, fragrant fresh flowers, fabulous finger food.
- Magnolia Boulevard, Seattle
Great vistas from which to snap lots of great photos. Don't go down the stairs.
- Bill Speidel's Underground Tour, Seattle
Worth every penny. It starts with a 30-minute short-course on the history of Seattle followed by a fascinating walk around and through the original first floors of 3 historic buildings, which are now 10 feet below ground. Take the tour to find out why some people had to step up to use the toilet, and to find out the secret location of the city of Duwamps.
- The Ballard Locks, Seattle
A great place for a picnic lunch and a great way to pick out a new boat. (Hint: I'd take any of them.)
- The Washington State Ferries
A great place to take pictures. See below.
- The Seattle Waterfront
A fun place to people watch & eat seafood with a view.
- Island Country Inn, Bainbridge Island
Nice place with lots of "amenities". Breakfast bar with belgian waffle maker, Chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon, and Seattle's Best Coffee on tap all day long. Plus, Martha Stewart slept there once, or at least had her picture taken there once. Not to mention, it's the only hotel on the island.
- Simon's Chinese Cuisine, Winslow
Proof that small town life doesn't have to suck.
- Snoqualmie Falls, Snoqualmie
A 270-ft waterfall (see intro to Twin Peaks TV show).
- Bookwalter Vineyards, Richland
Awesome JoCat 2001!
- The Hanford Nuclear Facility from the Columbia River
Classic story of government screws landowners, builds bomb, and levels two Japanese cities. Pretty river.
- The Rough Guide to Seattle
Compact pocket-sized book with a wealth of information on Seattle and surrounding areas. A must-have for a serious tourists.
