Head out west. Hike west on the beach from Twin rivers, look for clam fossils, or around the mouth of the Elwah. Hike out to Cape Flattery the western most point of the contiguous US. Take time to check out Rialto beach. Stop by Fat Smitty’s at the head of disco bay for a big burger, or Sluy’s bakery in Poulsbo for great baked goods. That’s all I can think of off the top of my old grey head.

If you are landing at Sea-Tac and heading for Ranier there is no reason to go into Seattle. My sister lives there and I avoid the place. If you are going to Forks from Ranier you're going right by my house, MP 122. Take a drive around Lake Quinault, stop at the beach when you go through Kalalock, a short side trip up the Hoh would be good too. On the South Shore road at Lake Quinault you can walk to the worlds largest Sitka Spruce. I sometimes trap there when the beavers flood the trail. There is almost always a herd of elk in the fields above the lake. Cross your fingers for a clear day. The Mountains are beautiful.

Get yourself on you-tube and watch the special by KOMO tv "Seattle is dying". Then decide for yourself if you wanna go see it. And KOMO is no conservative TV station either. Makes me sick thinking about what seattle used to be.

Stay out of the Seattle cess pool and come over to eastern Washington. The folks are friendly and you can experience things lke grand coulee dam, dry falls, and great walleye fishing.

If Canada will allow you in, you might enjoy dining on seafood in Vancouver. Take your passports.

I loved Seattle when I went, but that was in 2010. Took a ferry across the sound for a wine tasting. Space needle was nice, but pricey. The market was nice, but don't even look at any of the street performers or they will want money. I did see a native person carving beautiful totems out of drift wood. He wanted too much, but when I sent to old ball and chain over, the price was suddenly lower. Don't know about going in the current day and age though.
