In the summer months, there aren't too many clear opportunities for some quality mother-daughter time, so I thought I'd treat my own mom and myself to a road trip vacay through the Pacific Northwest.The mama and I are going to be eating, shopping, and sightseeing our way from Portland to Seattle to Vancouver after cashing in the 250,000 American Express Membership Rewards points we've received through AmEx to spend on plane tickets, hotels, and a car (Mama Wang would like you all to know that if I were a tad more frugal, we could have also gotten vouchers to see shows, get our nails done, and eat at the top of the Space Needle. Whoops). While our suitcases might be filled to the brim (click through to see a little packing roundup), there are a few holes in our itineraries, still — so we need you! Where are your favorite hang-out spots in Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver? Leave them in the comments below and we'll be sure to check them out!
