If your ever in Seattle you need to stop at The Museum of Flight. This attraction was included in our Seattle Citypass and while I wasn’t really excited to go here, I’m really glad I went. When you first pull into the parking lot you see outside the building full size warplanes. They are so cool looking and so big. This is nothing compared to all you will see inside. When you walk into the big open area you will be amazed at what you see. They have planes hanging from the ceiling and on both levels. Everything from the first plane to hydroplanes to wooden planes. They even have a Boeing 737 that you can go inside of. They even have a replica McDonnell Mercury Capsule and other stuff there ...Read More

They have a section where you feel like you’re inside a tank with water and different fish swimming all around you. They also have a shark tank, among other things. The place takes some time to go through for sure When we were there, not everything was covered with a roof so it got a little cold and only one bathroom was open or working. They have a gift shop that you pass through on your way out that has a ton of souvenirs for sale. It’s a cute little aquarium and I’d recommend seeing it. It’s not the best out there but still...Read More

If you want to go on a cruise while in Seattle, Argosy Cruises is the one to choose. This activity also came with our City pass and included a one-hour cruise of the bay. We decided to upgrade to the locks cruise and I’m so glad we did. We all met at the pier and they bused us up to where the boat was and took pictures of us. Then we were off on the cruise. They take you buy million dollar homes and give you tons of info about what’s around there. They also pointed out the houseboat that was used in Sleepless in Seattle, which was pretty cool. Going through the locks was really fun to do. It was interesting to see how they get you from one body of water to a different one that is also at different dep...Read More
