As a wrap-up to our trip to the Pacific Northwest, I wanted to share our tips and tricks.
We highly recommend this pass if you are interested in doing more than three of the included attractions. For $59, we got entry to the Seattle Aquarium, a 1-hour Argosy Harbor Cruise, The Pacific Science Center, The Space Needle, Woodland Park Zoo (or Museum of Flight) and the Experience Music Project (which we did not use). The adult admission to each of these attractions is around $20, so we saved $40 each on our visit.
We felt that 2 1/2 days was plenty of time to spend in Seattle. We could have filled additional time if we had it, but we were satisfied.
This is a place that we would love to visit again. In fact, I could easily spend a week in the area and I would still probably wish for more time. I would have really liked to visit other parts of Olympic National Park, especially the rain forests along the western edge.
Twilight has been pretty big here in Utah, but it does not compare to the obsession that Team Edward and Team Jacob have inspired in their supposed stomping grounds. The Twilight Series has obviously been a major contributor to the tourism in the area.
Once again, this is somewhere that I would like to spend a whole lot more time. We gave ourselves a little taste of the area and now we would love to return. Both Alison and I were amazed by the multi-cultural makeup of Vancouver. In our few minutes walking along the street, we heard quite a number of different languages and we were both surprised with the amount of French that we heard.
All in all, we traveled:
By air - 1,374 miles
By car - 634 miles
By boat - 13 miles
By foot - Who knows?
