Good place to visit, but they need to empty garbage bins on a regular basis

This was our first visit and yes there are lots of things to see and do but when we were walking round almost every garbage bin was full and there was litter on the sidewalks... read more

The city’s foremost attraction that features the Space Needle, the Monorail and the Chihuly Garden among others. Seattleites must be proud of this landmark as they were 50 years ago when it hosted the World’s Fair.

A great place for families to hang out. A good example of city planning done right. It seems there is always something happening.

I loved the area, if it weren't for the construction would totally be a 5 for me. You will see some of the great tourist attractions, and some of Seattle including many micro brews. Being from South Dakota, it's always a reminder going to big cities with good weather that there are so many homeless people. It was a wonderful... More

Seattle has become one of my wife's and mine favorite destination. We absolutely love everything about it. Over the past few years we have been there 4 times and we live in Florida. You have to take the Monorails. Don't forget to go to loyds for breakfest at the market.

We rode the monorail out to the centre. There is a play park to run around and a huge water fountain to cool off in afterwards. There is a good food court as well.

My family and I visited Seattle Center during a brief stay in Seattle prior to boarding a 7-day Alaskan Cruise. Seattle Center was everything we expected it to be! Friendly, eclectic, and awesome! The monorail was a great way for my mobility-challenged parents to see a bigger part of Seattle than they otherwise could have on foot.

Really enjoyed walking around here. The fountain in the middle of the center is amazing with the music and different water spouts. Lots of kids enjoying this fountain. Pacific museum is cool, the different displays of dinasaurs was great and so realistic, even the sounds seemed real. Great place to site see, people watch and enjoy a day in Seattle.

Take the monorail from downtown to Seattle Center. Then ride to the top of the Space Needle. But, don't stop there. Visit the Pacific Science Center museum. See the EMP music museum. Or better yet, walk through the gardens and visit the design studio and workshop of the famous glass blower - Dale Chihuly. But, take lots of money. And,... More

I come here probably 8-10 times a year as they have a lot of festivals and events on the grounds. The Amory (previously called the food circus) has a nice selection of restaurants and lots of open space for events. The fountain is one of the key features here with music and choreographed water displays as well as an outdoor... More
