Seattle Center offers something for just about everyone, from venues for plays, ballet, operas and films to the Chihuly Garden and Glass, currently (Nov. 2014) ranked the city's #1 attraction on Trip Advisor. The Pacific Science Center beckons to children while the International Fountain with its dancing waters entices them (and me) to play on hot summer days. But it... More

Seattle has a great deal to see and the Seattle Center is a great place to start. I suggest purchasing the combined Chihuly Gardens and Space Needle ticket to save some money. We enjoyed the garden and glass sculptures. The space needle was interesting, I loved seeing the city in 360 degree. This should be a definite part of any... More

Very lovely area to spend the day, walk around to a couple of museum and enjoy the space needle, great to have lunch in the armory and catch a trip on the monorail!

While this tour does not travel all over the city and around the lakes and neighborhoods, it does hit some of the cultural aspects and Space Needle.

Really, I didn't understand why these place exists. So short the route, and it's not a especial transportation technology.

Tons of things to do here. Must go there if you go to Seattle. The Space Needle, restaurants on the grounds and nearby, Science Centre, Chihuly Exhibit, The Armory Food Fair, the EMP Music Exhibit, etc. It is also one end of the Monorail to downtown. I recommend staying in this area, known as Belltown, because there are about a... More

There are a *lot* of attractions at the Center, so it could totally fill up a whole day, or just a couple hours, depending on what you're interested in. Two universal recommendations are the Seattle Needle shop -- even if you choose not to get up the Needle, like I did, there are lots of souvenirs options, for various prices... More

This gem is the perfect family or couple place to visit EMP(Seattle inter-active Music museum or The Pacific Sci Center. Amazing yourself with I-Max buy checking out a feature film or light show.

I thought this was one of the nicest and cleanest parts of the city. Our hotel was a 10 minute uphill walk to the center, so we visited a few times. Lots of attractions - among them are: The Monorail, Chihuly Museum (awesome), Pacific Science Center with the dinosaurs and other marine life is cool, the landmark Space Needle and... More
