There was a 2010 thread on the subject that was always pretty interesting, so here's the 2011 attempt...
My wife and I are planning a trip to Seattle in July for a friend's wedding. It's the first time out there for longer than just a few hours for either of us. We are planning to leave our daughter who will be just about 11 months by then with my in-laws while we are gone so it will also be our first evening(s) away from her (and probably last for quite some time).
The few times I was in Seattle before, the city and the surrounding area always seemed so gorgeous so I'm hoping for nice weather because I want to take a side trip out to Mt. Ranier National Park or maybe Olympic National Park. It will be nice to be in an area with some actual topography for once! (The hills alluded to in my location description are downright laughable by the standards of those in many other parts of the country.)
We're tentatively planning on being out there for 4 or 5 nights. Any suggestions from the throbbing Cyburbian Brain on places we should visit if I want my wife to absolutely in love with the area and randomly suggest we should move there?
