Without threadjacking pinoy's thread (hope that's okay since pinoy posted in the PNW forum), I would appreciate your offered suggestions on Victoria and Vancouver.
Well, who else would cut the cheese?Stevie B said:Don't bother going to Tillamook. I lived there for a while and the cheese factory isn't worth making the trip. Tillamook county does have the highest number of parolees residing within its limits.

There is always stops.sfhondapilot said:I appreciate everyone's input.
In addition to the Mariner's game, we have a reservation for tea at the Empress Hotel in Victoria.
Any helpful suggestions for the drive from Seattle -> Victoria -> Vancouver -> Seattle? I have the ferry schedules but are there any stops along the way that we should budget time for?
LOL, Well it wasn't the greatest place, but i enjoyed the how to make cheese portion of the tour.kemosabe said:While one person says...

Right now, we are planning to take the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island, drive to Port Angeles and take the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria.PNW-Pilot said:
Which ferry are you taking to Victoria, I recommend the one that Leaves from Twassen in BC. The Black Ball Ferry from Port Angles is good you can at least get reservations, is very far way from Seattle and the Twassen is closer. I also forgot about the Anacortes Ferry to Victoria, you can reserve that as well, but the trips is way longer then the twassen (3hrs vs 1hr)
Budget time to get to the ferry well before you are scheduled to leave, they fill up fast, and you may miss the ferry you intend to catch.
To confuse this even more. the WSF (state ferrries, aka seattle bainbridge) they charge passenger fares west bound only, the vehicle fares are charged both ways.sfhondapilot said:One question I had after reviewing the ferry prices is that they list a passenger price and a vehicle price. If we have four passengers in the car, do we end up paying just the vehicle price or the vehicle price and three non-driver passengers?
I am guessing it is the latter but thought I would confirm to make sure we have enuf $$$$.
