If you are in Seattle, you must visit the Seattle Center and all of the Seattle Center Campus. If you are lucky enough to visit on a warm summer day, buy a snack in the Center and go outside and sit around the fountain and enjoy great people watching! Getting there from downtown is easy via the Monorail!

Great way to get to the Space Needle from downtown. Gives an interesting perspective of the city. Never a long wait and lots of room in the cars.

The Seattle Center is home to several museums, the Key Arena, a park and fountain, the monorail, and of course the Space Needle. Great during both day and night, give yourself enough time to visit a few of the attractions. I recommend purchasing the City Pass; you get more for your money that way. Also be sure to take the...

Nice area with easy access to Space Needle and EMP museum. Monorail takes you into downtown for a couple of bucks. Lots of buskers and, vendors and food. Ample room to sit and relax and great sight lines for photography.

Had to ride the Monorail just because it's something we dont have back home. It was a short ride but a fun one. Great and cheap way to get from starting point to end point.

The monorail takes you right here. There are several places to visit from here including the Space Needle, the science museum and Chihuly Gardens. They have a food court with some very good eateries and a table service cafe.
