In Olympic National Park, ancient rainforests and ocean tidal pools at lower elevations contrast with wildflower-filled alpine meadows and snowcapped peaks.
Escape the urban bustle at Ruby Beach and Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center. Do some cultural sightseeing at Olympic National Park and Second Beach Trail. Go for a jaunt from Olympic National Park to Quinault to see Quinault Big Spruce Tree about 1h 20 min away. It doesn't end there: cruise along Hurricane Ridge and explore and take pictures at Olympic Peninsula Loop Drive.

For maps, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Olympic National Park vacation trip planner.

Moline to Olympic National Park is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Moline to Olympic National Park. Traveling from Moline in March, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 37°F in Olympic National Park. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to catch the ferry to Seattle.

Seattle
Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination.
Take a break from the city and head to Alki Beach and Green Lake Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Pioneer Square and Seattle Art Museum. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Pike Place Market, pause for some photo ops at Space Needle, see the interesting displays at The Museum of Flight, and admire the masterpieces at Chihuly Garden and Glass.

To find reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read our Seattle vacation planner.

Traveling by ferry from Olympic National Park to Seattle takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In March, plan for daily highs up to 54°F, and evening lows to 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 23rd (Fri) to allow time for travel back home.
