Hey gang. We take the kids to the the amusement park south of Sandpoint Idaho in the summer months. This year we want to take an extended road trip. I know many of you live in these 3 states. I have a 8 year old daughter and 4 year old son. Could you recommend a few good sights for the whole family? I have to see the west coast this year! Thanks for your road trippin advice.

Was going to reply to you the other day but mah iphone sucks to type on.

Your kids are going to love Silverwood theme park. DO NOT STAY AT THE SILVERWOOD CAMPGROUND. Sorry for the all caps there but believe me, you do not want to stay there. If you like to camp, stay at the Lake Pend Orielle state park. It is about 10 minutes north of Silverwood but it is a way nicer place to camp. Lots of cool wildlife and the place is very beautiful.

I can't speak much to much else in Idaho though. I have only really been there once (except driving through). In Oregon though, you have to go to the dunes and do some sandboarding!! Super fun and you don't have to be an expert to have fun. I would 2nd the idea of doing Hood summer riding. Any where on 101 near the coast is great to visit. The coast down there is amazing. You can camp for free in a lot of the spots as well.

Washington has a ton of things to do to keep your family occupied. Mt Rainer or Mt St. Hellens is a great place to take kids. Lots of hiking and trails. A little further north near Mt. Pilchuck there are some really cool ice caves that you should totally check out.

As I think about it I will post some more stuff.
