I'm from Seattle. What Jade said. I suggest you do the Oregon coast. I think it's much nicer than WA coast.

There is a salmon cruise (on a ferry) that leaves from the piers just north of downtown seattle, goes over to one of the islands. There is an native american museum and story telling ... and a wonderful salmon dinner. It is a little pricey, but I felt that I got a feel for the place even though I grew up there. And a fantastic dinner ... fresh seafood is the only seafood.

I'm only familiar with the northern part of Oregon ...

Mt Hood & Columbia River Gorge are beautiful, great hiking.

In June the area should be in full bloom, so check out some of the public gardens in and around Portland.

I live in Wash. But as a kid lived in OR. The best Place is 'Silver Creek Falls State Park' near Silverton, OR. It has up to 7- 14 water falls on a hike you can take! One that you walk behind! cool!
Also in the Oregon side of the Columbia Gorge theres a lot of cool sites, water falls one that starts with a 'M' I can't spell it but its very well known!
