It is during this time of the year. actually the weather there is almost the
same as here in Vancouver..we can have sunny, cloudy and rainy in a day.

At the Seattle Premium Outlet - Tulalip
Photos taken early in the morning which explained the scarcity of shoppers but was very crowded in the afternoon.

Having just come across this thread, I was excited to see a thread of Seattle pictures. One of those cities in my 'to see' list.

I see that you are from Vancouver; how 'do-able' is a two city trip - Seattle/Vancouver? How long does it take to drive between the two?

Weather-wise, what is the best time to visit?

You can either take a bus (which I never tried) or drive a rented car which usually takes between 2.5 and 3 hours
on a regular weekdays and it would take longer time on weekends and special holidays due to heavy traffic on the border.

As to the weather, the west coast is quite similar to yours except that we get more rain during springtime
and less snow during wintertime so it depends on which you prefer.

2.5 /3 hours is what is takes to drive from Liverpool to London - so very do-able. Thanks.

There's an Amtrak train, but it's only two per day. It's also unreliable in rainy weather due to landslides.

There's a severe lack of track between Seattle and Vancouver, and also the border is a hurdle. Many of us would kill for better service.

If you prefer to go by boat, there's fast service from Victoria BC to Seattle, and I think there are multiple options from Vancouver to Victoria though the one I know involves a slow boat and a bus. Victoria is worth a third day...though much of its charm is how similar it is to a British city so that might not attract...

I'm sure it would. The scenery in that part of the world is spectacular.

I'm saving up the pennies
