If wanting to take a 24-hour train ride up the coast during my time between jobs is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
The week I’m thinking of is 31 July through 4 August. I don’t know if I can make it all the way to Vancouver, but Seattle seems probable. Do any Seattle residents have recommendations for modest accommodations in the city? I want to do this all on public transportation, so it’s got to be central, and preferably close to the new public library.
Update: dear Seattle residents, can you tell me about the neighborhood the Amtrak station, located at 303 South Jackson Street, is in? Pointing me to a map with neighborhood information on it would be good. Telling me which neighborhoods to definitely avoid would be even better.
