Seattle - Road Trip Ideas

When wanderlust hits, there’s nothing quite like a road trip to fire up the imagination and inspire you to explore. Road trips from Seattle take you from small-town joys to towering wonders with plenty of off-the-beaten track pleasures along the way. Fly in, pick up the keys to your ideal car rental, and plan a Washington national parks road trip. Or take an epic trip to San Francisco via Yellowstone National Park. Car rentals open up a world of SUVs, luxury sedans, and cool convertibles to suit your plans, and you can go one-way or make it a return trip. Perfect.

Seattle to Vancouver

Wondering if you can take a rental car from Seattle to Vancouver? You can. Most car rental companies let you cross the border into Canada. Check for restrictions and insurance requirements before you book. The direct route from Seattle to Vancouver is 140 miles and takes just under 3 hours. But add in a detour to North Cascades National Park for picnics, for alpine lake recreation at Lake Chelan, and forest trails with waterfalls around Mount Baker. Cross the border at White Cross and drive the coastal road into Vancouver and explore the city. Just don’t forget your passport!

Seattle to Portland

A Seattle to Portland drive is 173 miles one-way and takes just under 3 hours. But for road tripping, add in some amazing natural beauty with a detour or two. Pick up your rental car and take the ferry to Bainbridge Island, then drive to Sol Duc Falls and Lake Crescent in Olympic National Park. A visit to Mount Rainier should be on your radar, too, with its year-round activities, plenty of lodging, and incredible vistas. If you’re a fan of 80’s movies, stop by the coastal city of Astoria where The Goonies was filmed, before landing in Portland to visit the cool local coffee haunts.

Seattle to San Francisco

Taking a car rental from Seattle to San Francisco is all about hitting the coast. It’s a long way—808 miles—which takes nearly 13 hours non-stop. So, this is a road trip to take your time over. You can go south to Portland or start west, visiting Olympic National Park. Drive Highway 101, stopping at Cannon Beach and exploring the sea caves west of Eugene. When you arrive in California, you’re in redwood territory, so drive through the Avenue of the Giants and look up. Then cruise the breathtaking Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco and drive across the Golden Gate Bridge for the perfect road trip ending.
