We took the monorail and went to the Seattle Center. It was a good place to just hang out and shop and eat.

This area was a surprise to me. My family was at another attraction, and I walked around the Seattle Center while I waited. There are several very interesting looking museums, as well as the Space Needle. There is a magnificent playground for the kids, which is free. Inside the Armory is a nice food court and relaxation area. When I... More

We took the monorail in to the center. There is wa-a-a-ay more to do here than I thought. There is more than can be done in one day if you have kids! Things are expensive though, so be prepared.

It was nice to be able to use the monorail to get to so much all in one place. Worthwhile to get to the Space Needle here. Also, the Children's Museum and artist's playground are pretty great. There are other sites here that we didn't get to, but plenty to do here that anyone can find something to suit their... More

Get your ticket and get aboard the monorail. It's a short ride above the streets and it makes you wonder why more cities don't invest in this mode of travel. The monorail takes you to/from Seattle Center and the Macy's downtown and once at Seattle Center you can ascend the Space Needle or wander around and have a bite to... More

This structure is the perfect was to go to the Space Needle and all of the attraction in that area. It is cheap and beats walking the hilly terrain around that area.

so much to do, so little time The fountains are awesome, the play area is one of the best for risk taking (but still safe), and it's surrounded be fun things to do like EMP, children's theater, and more! Parking can be costly, but if you take the bus it works out to an affordable afternoon activity!
