Seattle, I hear you have some art.

Simple: I'm heading to Seattle for the first time, and I love art—as in, I'm open to all of it. I'm going to be there for two full weekdays later this month, and my time is my own. I want to see cool stuff I can't see every day in Chicago. What might that be? [more inside]

48 hours in Redmond

I'm going to be spending a week or so in Redmond, WA for work in early December. Mostly I'll be working but I'll have about 2 days when I get there to do as I will. I've never been to the Seattle area before. What should I do, and what should I know about visiting? [more inside]

Mom Nature sabotaged our vacation! Now what?

[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]

Weekday Washington DC holiday advice

I'm looking to spend a week in Washington DC with my wife hitting up the museums,sights and food. We don't drive so we need advice on where to stay with suitable public transit options. We are not poor but we aren't loaded either so we are looking for midrange accomodations rather than budget busting DC core hotels. [more inside]

Which side of the street (in Seattle) is North?

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!

Vacation - Washington State and National Parks?

Planning a trip to Washington state in mid to late June for me, my wife and our 5- and 1-year olds. We're thinking of a couple days in Seattle and then the rest of the week exploring Olympic National Park. My questions are: We like the idea of Olympic because of the wide array of things to see there (coast, mountains, rain forest), but is it worth reconsidering Rainier or North Cascades instead? Or could Rainier be a day trip on the way back? [more inside]

Feel free to tell me to look at a map

Asking for fiction: looking to recreate a Donner party situation in the 21st century after the collapse of society for reasons. Group is on the road trying to get across the Rockies from the East Coast to Portland, Oregon for reasons. There aren't motor vehicles for reasons. The roads are still there, though. So are the tunnels? I guess there are tunnels? What paths would a group of dystopia travelers take over the Rockies? Where might they run into trouble when the winter comes in? [more inside]

Vancouver area in December: city, mountains, or both?

I will be attending a conference in Vancouver the week of December 5th. My wife and I usually like to turn these trips into vacation opportunities, so I would like to get the advice of you fine folks! First of all, the conference is at the Sheraton Wall Centre on Burrard St. Apparently, there will be reduced rates at the hotel for conference attendees, but I would be happy to hear any suggestions for less expensive lodging in that area. It's always a good thing to save the company a few bucks! [more inside]
