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)
Seattle Aquarium
Woodland Park Zoo
Safeco Field & Qwest Field both have tours
