[Coastal PNW filter] Lesson learned: Never plan for 10 days of camping, hiking and mountain biking in August. Vacation starts tomorrow. Wildfires, unhealthy air quality and high temps have foiled plans for the Cascade Loop. Fleeing toward the coast and south—except Oregon's on fire too!—where to? [more inside]
I'm taking my wife and kids ( 6 and 8 ) to Seattle for a 4 day vacation in late July. I'd like to spend a few days in the city a hopefully 1 or 2 outside of the city. Help us have an awesome vacation in the greater Seattle area. [more inside]
My partner was gifted a 1993 Toyota Camry. Fun! Unfortunately it immediately blew a head gasket. We need help deciding what to do. [more inside]
Planning a trip to Seattle in late August. Trying to decide where to stay and what things to prioritize, having never been there before. [more inside]
We are considering a move to Seattle, and if possible we'd like to drop down to one car and mostly use public transportation. How feasible is this? [more inside]
Seattle residents: in Belltown (and to a lesser extent downtown), the streets head from SW to NE and the avenues from NW to SE. Do people think of the streets as running east/west and the avenues as running north/south, as they do elsewhere? So for instance if I said, "the Northeast corner of 3rd and Vine", would most people understand which corner I was talking about? Thanks in advance!

A bunch of people in my office left for the holidays, and I suddenly find myself in charge of planning a team offsite for early January. I'm up for the challenge, but I need some recommendations... [more inside]

So, my husband and I are going on a cruise that leaves this Sunday from Pier 91 in Seattle. Boarding is from 1pm - 3pm and the boarding time listed for our cabin is 2pm. Our flight gets in to Seattle at 9:30am, which gives us 4.5 hours to kill. [more inside]

We will be in Seattle on July 4th - the last full day of our 3 week west coast holiday. What would be the best place to sit on a blanket and watch some fireworks? Preferably not the MOST crowded spot, but somewhere with a bit of a buzz would be fun. We're staying downtown if that makes a difference, but open to walking or public-transporting elsewhere.

I'm going to be in downtown Seattle (near the library) on business and won't have time for a sit-down dinner. Where would you recommend I get some take-out dinner? (No need for breakfast or lunch.) [more inside]

I'm heading to Seattle tomorrow and would like to park at the Tukwila International Boulevard Station park and ride and take light rail into the city. Will parking be a problem around 11AM on Saturday? Thanks!

My friends bought me a ticket to see Beyonce for my birthday. I'm so freaking excited! But I'm driving to Seattle form Portland, and after my last stadium show experience, I'm nervous about getting to the venue, parking, and getting to my seat in time. Would love some CenturyLink Field hacks and/or advice from savvy Seattlites. [more inside]

FamilyLucinda is planning a vacation to Seattle this summer. We have no real time constraints, so I'm wondering what sort of big events are coming to the city during July and August that we should factor into our decisions? Figure we'll hit all the big tourist attractions and museums already. Things involving the Arts & Crafts movement (particularly woodworking), bowling and roller derby are a definite plus.

We have next Monday and Tuesday free for our anniversary and are looking for a last-minute overnight outing in or near Seattle (less than 1 hour or so away). Ideally the trip includes at least some of the following: great food including a possibly slightly fancy dinner, a swanky or at least interesting place to stay, water views, bookstores, light to moderate outdoorsiness, strange museums or art, low-key adventure. It need not include Hallmark-card-style "romance." It MUST include at least one really kickass sandwich. [more inside]

I will be a woman of leisure later this week with a free afternoon in Seattle. I haven't been there in over 5 years - is there anything new that I should see or do, downtown-ish? Bonus points if it gets me near a Top Pot Donut location. I'll be light railing from the airport and need to eventually make it downtown or to Capitol Hill by dinner time.

My wife and I are moving across the country (PHL -> SEA) and are starting to research moving options. We are looking for recommendations for reliable and easy-to-work-with moving companies who do cross-country moves (or warnings of companies that you would avoid). Other tips and tricks for making this the easiest move possible are also welcome! [more inside]

Looking for a good 1-night getaway that involves some hiking. Car camping or staying in a cozy inn would be great. Willing to drive 2-2.5 hours from Seattle. We wanted to do something in the Cascades but I fear the fires. Maybe North peninsula? Looking for ideas. [more inside]

We're new-ish to the Seattle area and we'd like to find the best beaches for us and our 14-month-old to hang out and build sand castles and stuff at in or around the Seattle area. Bonus points if they have a playground also but we'd prefer awesome beaches with no playgrounds to okay beaches with them. [more inside]

My fiancee and I (very recently engaged!) are trying to plan a wedding in Seattle for this September (2015) - it's starting to feel a bit short notice, and while we've gotten some great tips and are exploring some fun looking venues, we don't live near Seattle. At the moment, we're really focused on finding a venue. I'd greatly appreciate any tips or thoughts people have! A few more details regarding what we're looking for are inside. [more inside]
