The brief drive outside the city is worth it to get a look at Wright planes, war planes, spy planes and more. The Great Hall features over twenty actual planes, including the man-powered Gossamer Albatross, an F-5 supersonic fighter and a Blackbird spy plane. The exhibits walk you through the history of flight, including everything from the Wright brothers to the mystery of Amelia Earhart, with artifacts, newspaper clippings and old video footage.

The kid's center is filled with interactive flight fun, but the real highlight is the simulated air-traffic control tower. As the museum is next to the Boeing airport, you'll watch real planes land and hear real-time transmissions as the pilots are guided in.

It could be the applewood grill, the gorgeous bar, or the romantic atmosphere that attracts Seattleites to Palace Kitchen on a regular basis. Or maybe it's a menu that includes Cayenne Spiked Crispy Pig's Ear, Goat Cheese and Lavender, and Wood-Roasted Lamb Sirloin, or the weekend happy hour that lasts until 1:00 a.m. Really, you don't have to try hard to find an excuse on chowing down at Tom Douglas's restaurant at 5th and Lenora – the food is reason enough.

Nine acres of fresh produce, seafood, coffee, donuts, crafts, unique restaurants and friendly vendors, all set against a backdrop of the Puget Sound – that's Pike Place Market, widely recognized as one of the oldest and best farmer's markets in the country. If you only have one day in Seattle, head downtown to get a real taste of the city in every sense. From fresh cheese curds at Beecher's to chowder at Pike Place Chowder, from necklaces and bags to hand-stitched leather journals and hats, from accordions to pianos to hula-hooping guitarists – there's something for your eyes, ears, and nose everywhere you look at the market.

Seattle Center

Seattle Center

It's more than just the home of the Space Needle. Seattle Center's rides, games, restaurants and grounds span 74 acres; it's possible to spend an entire sight-seeing day right here. For the kids, it's a sure bet for entertainment, with everything from roller coasters to arcade games and mini-golf. There's also a children's museum and theatre in the Center House for a more educational experience. On a summer day, break out the bathing suits and splash around in the International Fountain (with plenty of grass for lying out and catching some rays as well).

Built for the 1962 World's Fair, this 605-foot towering structure may also rate as one of the nation's most recognized structures...and one of its most overrated tourist traps.  The $22 adult day-and-night ticket is about as steep as the Needle itself, and one's wait in line will often exceed the time spent at the top.  The views are free and just as impressive atop the Columbia Tower nearby on Fifth Avenue.

It's not a grassy, flowery garden – picture a Japanese zen oasis instead, with a high, rocky waterfall blocking the sounds of the city on all sides. With a few plants, benches and tables for two strewn about, this is the ideal spot for a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle and steal an intimate moment together.

  • Seattle, 98121

A glance at the two joined buildings tells you these are museums like none you've ever visited. Experience Music Project is an interactive music museum that started out as a tribute to Hendrix, but grew to include everything from doo-wop to Seattle grunge. If the kids are in tow, bring them upstairs to the interactive rooms, where they can play and learn on real electronic drums, turntables, keyboards and guitars – they can even get "on stage" to play for a crowd!

When your inner rocker is appeased, give your inner geek a peek at costumes and props from Star Wars, Star Trek, and any other movie or TV show that explored other galaxies over at the Science Fiction Museum. Permanent exhibits include a weapons unit (from lightsabers to Klingon daggers) and wall-sized computer-generated computer generated images of sci-fi cities from The Jetsons, The Matrix and more.

Just another quirky spot to visit in Fremont! The neighborhood's infamous troll, 18-feet high and clutching a VW bus it seemingly grabbed off of the Aurora bridge, is a great place for tourists to take a few funny photos. The troll is part of Fremont in every way, from making appearances in the Solstice Parade to donning his own Halloween costume every October.

The country's largest ferry system would have to be in a city surrounded by water. With twenty terminals, eight routes and over 15 million passengers a year, Washington State Ferries are both practical and fun. If you're considering hopping over to Bainbridge, Bremerton, Mercer or any of Seattle's interesting islands, a peaceful ferry ride is a far cry from sitting on a bridge in traffic.
