This is a company network for, my fictitious network.   Please refer to my Visio attachment that I have created for this question.  

In both the Seattle and Boston offices there are four departments, Marketing, Sales, Accounting and HR.  As you can see, they're all in their own respective VLANS.  My objective is to figure out how to configure routing so that workstations in different Vlans can access resources wherever they want, either on other Vlans in the same office or in some cases resources on workstations in the remote site.  

I do not want to implement a "Router on a stick solution" (I already know how to do this) and am trying to figure out a different way using Layer 3 Core switches in each office along with a router.  I'm just now learning this so appreciate any coaching!  I'm a few days into this with various approaches and think I could use some tips at this juncture.
