During the building of the World's Fair Seattle Center, the excitement ran high. A Space Needle, a science center, little exhibits from everywhere around the world with exotic foods. It's so yesterday now. The center itself is dated, science center ok, you can eat exotic foods in Kansas,and the space needle, hmm. When I was reminiscing with a friend yesterday,... More

We took my adult children up to Seattle to kick it for the weekend, spent some time at the Seattle Center. Here is a big money saving tip that I was not bright enough to research ahead of time: Buy the City Pass for $69. You can visit: Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum or EMP Museum (very cool), Pacific Science... More

Monorail is so short of a ride its like why did i pay for this??? It looked a little dated and over run with homeless people begging for change. I was very disappointed with the monorail ride seriously thought it was at least a 10 or 15 min ride. Most of the city pass attractions are over this way so... More

Whether you're visiting the Seattle Science Center, the Space Needle or the amusement park, this is the kind of place that you want to spend the whole day. They keep it clean, the attractions are unique and highly accessible, and there is almost never a wait for the things you really want to do. One of the very best tourist... More

Great experience and a nice park. The area is clean and accessible by the monorail which is reasonably priced. Along with the needle this makes it a must see for Seattle.

Great area to see with so many different options for families. We rode the monorail to save us some walking to head to the shopping areas/Pike's Place Market. Wonderful use of open spaces with parks, fountains, sculptures & museums galore!

We saw an outstanding play there, an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughter House Five by the Book-it Repertory Theatre. The venue was comfortable and cozy and easy to get to. It is near the EMP and not far from the space needle.

Yesterday we went to the Seattle Center to visit Chihuly Garden and we ended up spending half a day there as there was the Groupon Bite of Seattle going on and it was great fun to sample all kinds of foods, wines, and watch cooking demos and a chef's cook off. We almost stayed the rest of the day!

Great area that was walking distance from our hotel. The Space Needle, monorail, Chiluly Gardens, Seattle Children's Museum, EMP Museum are all located in this area. In addition (and a hit with our kids!) is an amazing splash fountain that kids are encouraged to play in. The sprayers are set to music and kids can run through these for hours... More
