got feedback?back)Seattle is full of fun things to see and do. Most of downtown Seattle is walkable and, if you wish to take a bus, Seattle has a Ride Free Zone to help you get around the city.
Seattle Museum Of Flight is a great place with every thing from a former Air Force One to a Concord and a M21 (Think SR71.)
Ride The Ducks Of Seattle is a land and water tour on an old military DUKW.
Gray Line Of Seattle Offers a wide variety of tours of Seattle and Western Washington.
Seattle Underground Tour is an interesting look into Seattle's history.
Expierience Music Project is an interactive museum of music history. Also in this "unique" building is the Science-Fiction Museaum and Hall of Fame
Pike Place Market is a must see on many people's list. Be sure to keep an eye out for flying fish.
Seattle has a variety of Observation Towers Of course there is the Space Needle, but there is also the Columbia Center Observation Deck which is much higher than the Space Needle. The Smith Tower also has one, not as grand as the other two but should still be interesting. The article also lists one on a water tower in Volunteer Park. Never heard of that one I'm going to have to check it out myself sometime soon.
If you want to stay on the water front be sure to check out the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop it is a classic.
Pacific Science Center
Victoria Clipper (in case you wanted to visit Canada)
Woodland Park Zoo
Safeco Field & Qwest Field both have tours
There is tons more to see and do, there is no way I could list it all. But this should get you started.
