Seattle has a lot of things so see and do. I used the citypass (you can find it on the web) that gives you great discounts when seeing the woodland park zoo, the Space Needle, the Pacific Science Center and the new experience music project.

Best Way To Get Around:

Crabpot Restaurant The

Restaurant | "The Crab Pot"

Quote:
The Crab Cracker is a child's delight. Imagine butcher block paper laid out on the table, then the waitress pours a large bowl of crab legs, clams, etc. onto the paper. Then you're handed a large wooden mallet. BAM!!! let the feast begin!! Besides being entertaining the food is well prepared and the view of the boats on Puget Sound make for a relaxing meal.

Metropolitan Grill

Restaurant | "The Metropolitan Grill"

Quote:
The Metropolitan grill is considered on of the finest resturants in the city. If you want a great steak it's the place to go. Sit up at the counter, where you are within a few feet of the expansive grill. You can chat with the cooks while they are preparing a wide variety of food. Although they work very rapidly you are never pressured... a lot of people sit at the counter for 15 minutes until they see something they like being prepared, then they order it.

The woodland park zoo is considered the finest zoo in the northwest. Its wide variety of animals and well development habitats make for an enjoyable experience all around. Recently a new baby elephant was born at the zoo which has increased the size of the crowds. It's worth the wait in line, the new elephant is a joy to behold.

Space Needle

Attraction | "The Space Needle"

Quote:
Over 600 feet high and built for Seattle's Worlds Fair, the city's icon offers visitors a fantastic view of Seattle and the surrounding landscape. When you are riding up to the top of the city's tallest structure it's like being "beemed up"... the view just keeps getting better and better.
