    Pike Place Market

    4.5
    275 reviews

    Despite the almost constant maddening throngs of tourists all posing for photos outside the original Starbucks in the center of it all, loudly proclaiming how much they love PIKES PLACE (please note it's Pike Place, not Pikes) - this market is a must-see. There is much more to it than meets the eye. For a real taste of the market, ...

    Space Needle

    4.5
    239 reviews

    Did you know it costs $19 to go up to the top of the Space Needle? Neither did I, until recently. My friend and I took a trip to the top and we spent some time taking photos of the 360 degree view of the city. Blue skies galore! It was a gorgeous June day. The ticket is good all ...

    Seattle Waterfront

    4.5
    118 reviews

    NIce for a stroll, you will find Ivars and Elliotts here as well as the Aquarium and the big wheel. There is a little "park" just south of the Aquarium that is off the busy side walk and is a nice place to enjoy an ice cream and the view. The arcade is as you'd expect adds a fun atmosphere. ...

    Experience Music Project / Science Fiction Museum & Hall of Fame

    4.5
    113 reviews

    This destination at Seattle Center is a two-for-one package that makes for a great day. The Experience Music Project is a museum of rock-and-roll and pop music with a lot of great exhibits and hands-on stations. Seattle has always been a great music town, so it's thrilling to see instruments and other memorabilia from artists like Jimi Hendrix. Kids get ...

    Great place to hang out on a nice sunny day. Sit over by the International Fountain and play in the water or just sit back and relax. Take in the EMP or head up to the top of the Needle. It's a great place.

    Seattle has a tremendous aquarium. Located on the Waterfront, this Aquarium has a huge tank complete with usually a diver show and exhibits. You will find many of the wonderful Pacific Northwest indigenous creatures who swim nearby. This is a terrific place to bring the whole family. Grab a bite to eat nearby and then head to the new Ferris ...

    Gas Works Park

    4.5
    60 reviews

    Gas Works Park is my favorite Seattle picture taking spot. The park is wonderfully hilly with the largest one being a great viewpoint. It has great views of Lake Union, Space Needle and the Seattle skyline. This park is interesting in that it was formerly a gasification plant and some of the machinery is left over as a result. This ...

    Fremont Troll

    4.5
    56 reviews

    Ask a local for directions to the Fremont Troll. The address is 3405 Troll Ave N, otherwise known as underneath the Highway 99 bridge, but the easiest thing is to ask. If it’s sunny there will be plenty of tourists making their way for photo ops. You might recognize this grumpy gentlemen from Ten Things I Hate About You. Climb ...

    Seattle Underground Tour

    4.5
    55 reviews

    If you're a history buff or like to listen to stories, this is the tour for you. They talk about the alternative stories of Seattle that aren't mentioned in history books. The guides are really into it, too, which keeps it engaging. Glad I took time to try this tour out.

    Washington State Ferry

    4.5
    49 reviews

    Really easy to figure out, reasonable cost and very convenient. We took the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge to get to Olympic National Park saved a ton of driving and was pleasant to stroll the deck and take in the views.

    Safeco Field

    4
    48 reviews

    Beautiful-Elaborate-Paid for by the tax payer. The building before this was just as nice- but, I guess these pro sports players need something no older than 10 yrs and no less than 1 billion dollars to play in. Maybe if the pro players paid for their OWN field things would be different. But, the way I see it is we ...

    Alki Beach Park

    4.5
    36 reviews

    Alki Beach is just a block away from our vacation rental cottage. Alki is "where it's at." The beach itself is a hot spot for sunbathers, people watchers, volleyballers, skateboarders, joggers, bikers, dog walkers, runners, and much more. There's usually a great vibe down here and a mix of people - families with kids enjoying splashing in the water, teenagers ...

    University of Washington

    4.5
    34 reviews

    One of the top schools in the country for medicine,,,,Its fantastic...but, if your white...you can forget it. Mainly asians with high GPAs get in....and then immigrants. If you're from Washington State and caucasion your 4.3 GPA won't help you here. You have to know someone. It is very political to get into this school. If you are not super rich ...

    Lake Union

    4.5
    27 reviews

    A local friend took me on an introductory tour of Seattle by canoeing along Lake Union. I had so much fun! It was great having a view of Seattle from the water. There were brief panicked and hilarious moments when I had to dodge large boats, but overall, it was a blast!

    Boeing Museum

    4.5
    25 reviews

    The "museum" is okay, but a tad small - the best part is the Boeing Tour - a must for any aviation buff. The "Boeing Museum" (at Boeing Field) is not to be confused with the "Museum of Flight" - a much more in-depth and enjoyable experience.

    Chihuly Garden and Glass

    5
    23 reviews

    A permanent exhibit featuring the work of one of the most renowned glass artists. Conveniently located next to space needle, it is a must see if you are visiting Seattle. The outdoor garden is my favorite part and the collection is seldom seen in other traveling Chihuly exhibits. It was magical.
