... or whatever your heart desires (there are nearby grocery stores Ballard Market, Trader Joe's, etc.) and spend an hour or two enjoying this gem in the heart of Ballard, a short ride north of downtown Seattle.
... the weekend, the Ballard Locks (as well as the nearby marina facilities and restaurants) is a great way to spend a few hours enjoying a part of the Seattle waterway system that is unique, educational, and casual.

We saw a big game in January - the atmosphere is amazing, and with the stadium so close to the city, the sights and sounds as you get close are spectacular.
The stadium is an easy walk from the Pioneer Square area of downtown Seattle that has a multitude of restaurants and pubs for pre and après game fun!

The University of Washington is a world class research university set in a beautifully spacious and garden laden environment with plenty of excellent student amenities, including great libraries.
Loved the Collegiate Gothic architecture (especially Suzazallo Library) and the beautiful campus setting (cherry blossoms in the Quad and Drumheller Fountain with Mount Rainier in the background).

... under a tree is a stone park bench...a gravestone for someone, that is perfectly situated to see the Olympics to the west, the Cascades to the east, the UW to the north and downtown Seattle to the south.
Very convenient pit stop on your way to the airport from downtown Seattle, and it's always nice to pay homage to your heroes.
#12 of 116 Sights & Landmarks in Seattle
There are always multitudes of people hanging out, rolling kiosks / vendors and a short walk to the Space Needle and Museum of Pop Culture.
A lot of families where also enjoying this spot and it's a great place to get out to enjoy a sunny day or evening.

It’s fun to walk up and down the steep streets, find hidden stairways, and explore all the great cafes and restaurants at the top and bottom of the hill.
An older neighborhood with a variety of residential architecture, it is worth exploring if only for that.

Lots of interactive displays and in the center the constantly changing display of plants and flowers and their natural habitat with amazing photos on a gigantic screen.
Walking into the Spheres is like walking into a different world - you feel a zen-like calmness as you walk among the flora and fauna.

Part of the charm of Fremont is its public art including a large statue of Lenin, the Troll and the always decorated sculpture of "Waiting for the Interurban".
This is an eclectic little place, with interesting art and really good food.

Viewed from downtown, the twin towers of the Cathedral dominate the skyline--sadly with very tall buildings being built around it, these landmark towers will soon be hidden.
Stunning architecture and an immense treat for all going to the church to worship.

It is a large park in the heart of downtown Seattle that transports you miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
A beautiful city park with lovely trees, flowerbeds, kids' play area, botanical garden and viewing platform in the old water tank?

Each time I go to Seattle I find something new and exciting to do, from the Space needle, to downtown and all the shops, to cruising the countryside and soaking in the beautiful scenery.
This is a much more peaceful waterfront place to visit than near downtown Seatle and parking is free.

My two teenage daughters loved visiting this spot and took tons of pics here, I was pretty amazed by all of the contributions as well.
Probably one of the only sights where you can leave a piece of yourself!

I would visit in conjunction with other attractions such as Pike’s Place Market, the Space Needle area, the Pier area, a cruise and/or a Water Taxi ride across Puget Sound.
Mummies, mermaids, skeletons, historical artifacts, post cards, T-shirts, puppets, candy, and a great time right on the waterfront downtown.

Johnathan Borofsky’s Hammering Man—a monumental moving sculpture owned by the City of Seattle is situated just outside SAM on 1st Avenue and University.
Hammering Man is very much a part of the cityscape and well worth a look before or after visiting the market or when walking around Downtown.
