Anything worth doing/seeing within 10 mins of Seattle Airport?

I've only got a few hours left in Seattle and currently I'm on the south end of downtown (6th Street to be exact)... heading back to the airport but I want to experience some Seattle other than the dilapidated warehouses that currently surround me. Is all the good stuff to the north or is there something down here to do/see?

    I take it you're in the International District? There's the Seattle Pinball Museum there! They close at 10 tonight, so you're good. Close to a light rail station for a speedy and cheap ride to the airport. It's a lot of fun to experience a blast from the past :)Seattle Pinball Museum

    Safe flight!

    Do you mean 6th Ave? There are some pretty cool stores and museums there. Just walk around and you'll see a lot of stores. A couple of my favorite stores are the Kinokuniya Book Store and Liem's Aquarium and Bird Shop. For museums, there's the Seattle Pinball Museum that's a lot of fun, and the Wing Luke Museum for some Asian culture.

    Quick stopover? Within about 15 minutes... The closest interesting thing is the docks in Des Moines (Washington). Quiet little town. You can get a view of one of the little islands and see the fisherman pulling in their crabs. There are a couple of quiet cozy little seafood places as well. You can even find a cheap movie theatre if you really need to kill some time, but the docks and nearby parks are definitely more scenic. Got more time? Take a drive along the Seaside.

    Honestly, no, not within 10 minutes. If you're already on your way to the airport your best bet is to check in, grab a coffee an a book and sit in the atrium and watch the planes take off. Seattle has a beautiful airport. You could get some Christmas shopping done, too, they have a lot of fun stores!
