Make this your first stop in Seattle! Everything is here, the Space Needle, Chiluly Museum and Gardens, the Pacific Science Center, EMP Museum and you can take the Monorail from Westlake Center (from 3rd floor), too! Beautiful outdoor playground for kids to explore and enjoy all day, plus the International Fountain very pretty. Can spend one full day here or... More

The Seattle Centre is worth a day of anyone's visit to Seattle. If you want to go up Space Needle, you would be well advised to book in advance online. You can peruse the excellent EMP Museum (shaped like a Hendrix guitar), eat in the Armory foodcourt, visit the Chihuly glass museum (the best attraction here for my money) or... More

This is a very nice park. We walked through this park at least 6 times during our stay as our hotel was located just outside the park. Every time we went, there was a different activity going on--free concerts, performers, water park. It felt very safe. Our highlight was a visit to the Chihuly Gardens, where you can see amazing...

I have visited the Seattle Center 4 times now, the first when it opened and 3 since. Needless to say the first was spectacular but the next 2 were less than impressive (dated and filled with homeless). Well, this last trip changed my mind, leaving a positive impression. It is apparent the city is making great strides for the homeless... More

We stopped at the Center after a trip to the Needle to grab lunch. There were at least ten different fast casual eateries there, We chose a Cajun grill and an Italian place. The food was hot, fresh, and plentiful but the prices seemed higher than what you'd pay elsewhere. This is expected at a tourist attraction area. Service at... More

We spent two days in Seattle, after driving south from Vancouver following a week's cruise to Alaska. We were surprised at the number of homeless people in Seattle; we're not sure if that's a bigger problem in the Pioneer Square neighborhood where we were staying, but it was shocking. We opted to spend both of our days at Seattle Center... More

Great area to relax & people watch. Lots of different entertainment options here. They have lots of nice pubic areas that are free & good for kids. They offered a water play area, for kids to play in & a unique playground.

My wife & I hadn't been to Seattle in Years so I took her there for our 34th anniversary in 2014 and loved it. The Seatle center is great to get around and being in Seattle we didn't even rent a car. It drops you off right there under downtown. The whole area of the Seattle Center I think is... More

I used to live in Seattle and thought it was one of the best cities in the world. When I visit lately though, there are so many that appear homeless, asking for handout, or even just holding signs saying please give me money because I want to get high. It seems like it has really gone downhill. While I agree... More
