Vancouver or Bust!

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. Would that make sense to fly into Seattle and then make my way to Vancouver via rental car, bus or train, OR would it be smarter to just pay the extra cost and just fly straight into Vancouver.

Vancouver vs. 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?

Techno Radio in Portland?

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.
