My husband and I are visiting the Seattle area in a few weeks. We will be heading from Seattle to Rainier (via the North route) on a Friday afternoon and spending the night at Paradise. We are heading down and spending the next night at Sea-Tac. Should we make sure we are at Paradise in time for dinner (by 8:00 or so) or is there some place along the way you would recommend? On the way down, (the southern route) can you recommend for a dinner stop? It doesn't have to be in the general vicinity of Sea-Tac-we will have a car and willing to go a bit out of our way if their is something we shouldn't miss. Thanks!!
PS We will be spending a few night in Seattle (eating at the Flying Fish and Restaurant Zoe) so we don't want to head back into the city for our last night.
