Time of year is important to know. If you are visiting Seattle right now and wanting a day trip, it isn't going to be easy, because much of the area is under snow. Roads that are open in the summer are not necessarily open right now.

The basics of the park are here:

Which will give you some ideas of what areas you can get to right now, or what season of the year you are planning your visit.

I was there a few months ago and it was spectacular! Here's a video I put together of the experience: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svb2KjQBJGU&

As the others have said though, call the Mt. Rainier authorities to see if the roads are passable and if so, with what type of vehicles/tires.

Travel Tips for Seattle

Parkings!

by Minnieg

Please..Please.. if possible dont rent a car or anything.. take taxi, cabs or metro bus! renting a car will give you a headache! it's hard to find parking spots anywhere and you have to pay ridiculous parking charges! Parking fees are ranging 6-10 dollars per hour. Driving in Seattle area is a no-no!

* Things to Consider *
- Heavy Traffic
- Expensive parking fees

This really depends on your...

by mak23

This really depends on your preference. If you like tourist sites, obviously check out the Pike Place Market to start and there's a several department stores all over downtown if you like to shop. There's a coffee shops and a homeless person on every block so be prepared to be overwhelmed if you are from the east coast. Rented a car to go outside of Seattle and checked out Snoqualmie Falls (sight of 'Twin Peaks' lodge). To be honest, I wouldn't want to live in Seattle but outskirts looked absolutely beautiful and if you like nature stuff, you'll probably want to live here.

Bike around San Juan Island

by hkgirl

Biking around San Juan Island is a lot of fun.It is pretty hilly, but not as crowded as those islands on the east coast. The views are great. You can see the Olympic mountains and mt. Baker with their white caps.

If you get time take a coach trip from the tourist office to the Boeing factory at Everett. There you'll see the wide body aircraft (747, 777) production line in the largest building by volume in the world. The picture shows the planes lined up ready for acceptance testing after being painted.

Go Local

by Sunshine64

While most people associate Starbucks with Seattle's coffee culture, the true coffee culture is found in local shops. We are spoiled by these awesome beverages, prepared by skilled barristas (vs. the automatic espresso machines used in many Starbucks locations these days).

If you're staying downtown, try Cafe Ladro and Top Pot Doughnuts.

In Belltown - Macrina Bakery has great espresso drinks. Uptown Espresso on 4th and Vine is awesome. And Bellino on 2nd uses the creamy-delicious Vivace method of making their drinks : )

These are just a FEW of the many fine local shops.

If you MUST go to Starbucks, go to the one across from Pike Place Market - The Original, which opened in 1971.
