Trying to plan a last minute trip to Vancouver and need some hotel recommendations. Also, it's looking like it's significantly cheaper to fly into to Seattle.

My girlfriend and I have 1 weekend (two days one night) to spend in either Vancouver or Seattle or some combination of both cities and know nothing about either of them. We dock in Vancouver at 7 am on a Friday in June and will need to be in New York on Sunday. Planning on a Red eye from Seattle Saturday night. We generally like outdoorsy things (hiking, mountains, parks etc.), museums, and music. Alas, we also have a limited budget. Questions: What's to do in Vancouver? What's to do in Seattle? Do we need a car? Is it far to drive from one to the other? Any suggestions as to where to stay/eat?

My son moved to Portland over a year ago from the SF Bay Area and misses the radio choices we have here, especially for techno. I googled for info but am not sure how current the information I found is. Does anyone have suggestions for techno radio stations in the greater metro Portland/Seattle/Vancouver area? He drives a lot between Portland and Seattle for his work and would appreciate the call sign as well as the number.
