More Americans Will Travel

It’s summer and Americans with travel plans will increase with July fourth ahead.  Suggestions with Jesse Tam are road trips from Seattle metropolitan along Interstate 5 north to Canada or head south on I-5 to Oregon along the coast and into California.  Cheaper gas prices is allowing us to spend pennies saved at the pump on other activities.   Travel to this destination as a one day trip, spend a weekend or longer and enjoy the cozy towns in the surrounding area.

A stronger economy and jobs is helping to boost the number of planned getaways over what is traditionally the most traveled holiday period of the summer.  If the roads seem a little more congested, it’s because they are. Among those traveling, nearly 85% are hitting the highway, a 0.7% over last year.  Hotel prices and airfares will increase slightly this year.

What are you summertime plans?  Whether it is a short getaway or flight across the skies, explore and take time to see the world.  Learn from each experience new sights and discover.  A fantastic place discovering the Olympic mountains and Peninsula.

Olympic National Park,  Washington. Discover nature and the outdoors with a morning stroll or hike along the trails…from sea to sky. A breath-taking day trip from Seattle and short ferry ride across the sound.  Stay a few nights and visit light houses. The Olympic Peninsula includes the Pacific coastline, the Olympic Mountains and  temperate rain forest.

Recommend to visitors are Cape Flattery, Ruby Beach, Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent, and more. There is so much to do here: hike, eat, or watch the scenery.  A  place for all age group to get away.  Camp grounds are available with prior reservations, stay in a cozy cabins or the Lake Quinault Lodge.
