I'm planning a trip in the middle of September to Seattle and possibly Portland. I currently live in Michigan and because I only have one week for vacation, I'm taking a plane. My best friend is comming along and we both have about 1-2000 dollars budgeted for this trip. However, I know nothing of this city. What can you tell me about these cities that are "must do's", especially if they're off the beaten path. Are there any places you'd recommend to stay? Entertainment/dining? Also, it's not settled that we'll be going there. What are other places that would be great week-long vacations?
