My Grand PNW trip so far:

SPOKANE, WA 2 days
SEATTLE, WA 4 days

This trip starts 17Aug2020 and in Seattle 1Sept. Hopefully I'll be able to cross over to Vancouver if the border opens back up. If not, I'll re route and go down Pacific Coast Highway to the valley, Bakersfield, Visalia, Vegas, Grand Canyon and back....will see..

Any tips?! I have all the reservations already booked.

Thank the Lord for all this possible, the coach, my health, and everything in between. Praise Jesus!!

I kind of wish I had a co pilot, but am used to being alone with the babies, and now with the tow car, we can go anywhere pretty much that we want to....

Sounds like fun. However there is no way I would spend even 20 munites in Seattle right now. Why waste your time seeing all the damage from the rioters? Spokane is nothing special either. Decent city, but again just another city.

On our way back from Alaska to TN we decided to drive the Kaiser Hwy and ended up in Washington state. We drove the Pacific Coast Highway all the way to Napa Valley. Scenery was great we stopped at many places.

Only advice is to take time to smell the roses and take in the views.

I have to agree with 450Donn - skip Seattle. I would suggest considering a more northern route across the state from Spokane taking US-2 west to US-97 then north towards Okanogan before heading west again on SR-20 (also known as The North Cascades Highway). This will ultimately tie you in with I-5 well north of Seattle for crossing north into BC if open. If that isn't working out then consider staying on SR-20 to Coupeville and taking a short ferry run to Port Townsend where you can catch US-101 (aka The Pacific Coast Highway) and head south from there.

Here are a couple of links that may help:

Whatever you decide to do - have fun and enjoy the trip!
