    The Chihuly garden and glass exhibits were absolutely stunning, a must see! Make sure not to miss the collections exhibits its just passed the bathrooms and I think most people just pass by it.

    This is truly a remarkable museum for anyone who has even an inkling of interest in flight. I would rank it at or above the Smithsonian (DC and Dulles). My wife and I spent around 5 hours at the museum, including lunch...there's a nice café within the building.
    The museum is divided into several historical sections (WW1, WW2, Vietnam) and then there is a pavilion across the street that houses a British Airways Concorde, Air Force One (circa 1965), a B29, a B17 and many other planes.
    If you're in Seattle and have the time, I would highly recommend it.

    What a great way to get to Port Angeles via Bainbridge Island. The people working were great at navigating people who were new to the system. Left on time. Loved all the spaces of where to sit and the options to get food. The ride was part of the experience.

    If you are looking for a beautiful view of the city skyline and a great backdrop for a selfie, look no further than Kerry Park!

    We went up to the observatory on a Saturday afternoon. No line to wait in and not many people at the observation deck. This made the experience feel much less frantic than our visit to the Space Needle the day before. We didn't buy the extras, just the basic ticket. It was nice to be able to spend time taking in the view without having to jostle between people taking selfies as was the case with the Needle. We also sat and had a drink from the bar and sat and watched the view. I would definitely recommend a visit.

    We came here at the end of a busy day, as the sun was setting and it was fun. We watched a few boats go through the locks and walked around the garden. Very interesting if you've never been to a locks before.

    The butterfly house alone is is worth the visit. The whole zoo habitat is beautiful. So much attention to planting and the environment. I didn’t do any of the animal encounters but it’s cool that they offer these. The gray wolves are fantastic.

    Great seats everywhere, reasonable seat prices. Food is good, a little pricey. Level 1 has brats with jalapeno and cheddar, onions, peppers, and sauerkraut - excellent! I usually eat a ton of stuff, but that filled me up.
    Taking the train is a great option, but kind of a walk. Gotta have a clear bag to bring stuff in.

    The views are unparalleled. Go on a clear day and make reservations in advance. Even with timed tickets, the lines are long.

    The inside sets you back to 1900 to 1920 period - great interior. View is OK nowadays (plenty of higher structures around) , but was for sure unique at the early time of this tower.

    This mostly natural park has an amazing set of semi-paved (often covered in mud) trails, including a 2.8 mile loop. The far end of the park is where it meets the Puget Sound, and its really stunning. Lots of people go to stare at the water, draw, meditate.

    The trails are definitely not accessible friendly, and require comfort with talking on varying paths, rocks, and mud....lots of mud. Try the north parking lot for better acessibility..

    Took an Alaskan cruise for one purpose - to visit Pike Place Fish Market! Was not disappointed, even though our visit was on a Sunday morning! Still a very active place!

    Alki Beach Park is an amazing place to visit in Seattle. It's a great beach area with walking and bike riding paths. They have places to play volleyball places to just sightsee and sea seals, awesome it has an amazing view of Seattle. There are countless restaurants and bars in the area. You can spend an entire day at Alki Beach Park and have numerous things to do.

    Great views of the city from the park. It isn't a "must do," but if you are staying in the area, it is a good place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery.
