Space Needle, Chihuly Garden of Glass and several museums here. Terrific playground for kids. Monorail stops here from downtown Seattle.

The Seattle Center is the outgrowth of the World's Fair in the early 60s. The park setting is home to everything from Opera and ballet to theatre, the Chihuly Glass museum, a varied and extensive food court, even an ice skating rink in winter. The Space Needle overlooks the Center and is it's own attraction, though the proliferation of tall... More

In the area there are lots of activities, especially for children. There is the Pacific Science Centre, the Space Needle, Chihuly and Glass Garden and the EMH museum. Several places to eat food as well. Lots of seating in the area. Accessible to downtown either by walking (20-30min) or by monorail.

The Seattle Center has multiple tourist attractions (EMH Museum, Space Needle, and Pacific Science Center). There is also a nice food court to stop and eat. There Seattle Centers hosts multiple events throughout the year, so keep your eye on their schedule for something that looks fun.

We spent a lovely afternoon here. Used the monorail from the Westlake Centre which only took around 2 minutes and was very reasonably priced at $2.25 one-way. Beautifully kept area to wonder around and for children to play in. There are various exhibitions to visit and the Space Needle. Only downside is that these are quite expensive to get in... More

Its really nothing so good in the streets, else than the pike market, and museums, but everything closes too early, be aware to have dinner early if you are looking for something not too expensive. also starbucks close early not like in other cities.

This is a fun thing to do if you are staying in downtown and wish to visit the Seattle Center. There is only 2 stops, it takes you from Westlake shopping area to the Seattle Center (space needle, children's museum, EMP, Pacific Science Center, Duck tour, etc). It's fun if you have kids, and it costs only around $ 2.25... More
