My wife and are I trying to plan our early summer vacation. We are thinking of going to Seattle or exploring the Southwest. We are torn between both options. We will have about 5-7 days and a modest budget.
We like active vacations, dont mind driving and dont require posh lodging. We aren't the sit on the beach at a resort type, but we probably wouldnt want to spend 10 days backpacking either.
Some ideas so far include flying into Seattle, spending some time exploring the islands, and the city then take Amtrak's Empire builder east to Chicago. * Disclaimer - We went to Seattle/BC/Vancouver Island last yr. We loved it, but we only got to spend about 3 days in Seattle, but spent most of our time in the city.
For the Southwest, we were going to fly into Phoenix and drive northish, and go to Grand Canyon, Zion, and maybe SLC.
