    We drove from Sparland IL (20 miles north of Peoria) to Lakewood, WA (20 miles south of Seattle) in 3.5 days. We traveled via I-90 and did very little sightseeing along the way as I had driven this route before. You can push it a bit more each day and do it in 3 days. We travel with a dog so have to stop more. About 1900 miles each way. Prepare for delays and detours in mountains due to construction and rock slides -- they happen.

    Take a trip on a Washington State ferry! The view is spectacular and the price is very reasonable. On Bainbridge Island you can take a tour with Kitsap Tours (they meet you at the ferry terminal).. Choose between a tour of the island, a tour of the beautiful Bloedel Reserve or a full day touring several unique little communties west of Seattle. www.KitsapTours.com

    I would recommend staying in downtown Seattle. It has lots of good shopping, food, and there is a cool music museum. I would recommend a car.

    There are a ton of options, depending on your budget: Theater: White Christmas at the Fifth Avenue Theater The Rockettes at the Paramount Theater Pacific Northwest Ballet- The Nutcracker The Pacific Science Center (amusement park, food court, ice skating rink) Experience Music Project Seattle Aquarium Woodland Park Zoo (with Christmas lights!) Museum of Flight Make an appointment at Nordstrom and have your makeup done (usually free, although some purchase is appreciated.) Grab a book, magazine, or journal and spend the day at Cafe Lladro, or any independent coffee shop. Downtown has movie theaters and a Gameworks video arcade. If you drive a little bit North to Edmonds there is a whirlyball facility, a fun combination of bumper cars and basketball. If they're Twilight fans, nearby Forks, WA (a few hours drive) has tours of some of the sites used in the movie, which most young girls I know go nuts for.
