Kid Friendly Activities in Seattle

Heading to Seattle in November with a 9 year old and a 6 year old. It is their first time in the city. We have one free day and I would like to plan some activities they would enjoy. We are taking a boat trip the next day so do not need to add a boating activity. They are adventurous eaters. Thanks!

    Couple things-

    1. Ride the Ducks of Seattle is a fun cheesy way to see the city. Fun for everyone.

    2. Taking a Ferry is a great experience- grab a bowl of chowder and watch the city come and go from the outside decks. My kids love that.

    3. Doing the Seattle Aquarium and The Seattle Great Wheel would be a SUPER good day spent in downtown. you could even work in Pike Place Market and stop at some pretty great places to eat along the way.

    I would definitely check out Pike Place Market. While there make sure to walk down Post Alley, and check out the gum wall. Your boys will probably really enjoy that. Then take the stairs down to the water front and take a ride on the great wheel.

    The Seattle Aquarium would be good for kids. Nearby is Pike Place Market, grab a hot chocolate (or coffee) at the original Starbucks and pick up some smoked salmon (at the market) to snack on. Plenty of options for chowder and seafood nearby.

    With kids I always start with lunch Pike Place Market and watch them toss salmon like day old bread. Its easy to catch the Monorail up to Seattle Center, but lines can be gruesomely long riding up the observation tower. Time with kids is better spent visiting the Experience Music Project and the carnival rides. If possible, save time for Woodland Park Zoo - gem.

    I would definitely take the kids to the Pacific Science Center that is a local favorite for children. Also the is the Seattle Aquarium right down the street and also the The Seattle Great Wheel Fishermen's Terminal And if you have time there is the Pike Place Market for some local foods and gifts.

    There is actually a lot for kids to do in Seattle. I suggest checking the schedules for the Seattle Center,Experience Music Project and the Seattle Aquarium. There is also Woodland Park Zoo North of Downtown. If you don't mind fast food you might try Ivar's Acres of Clams. There is also The Old Spaghetti Factory and an asian food court in the International District Uwajimaya. Although I must note that they are on opposite sides of downtown.

    I agree with Thomas that Seattle Center (as in the "Armory" or Centerhouse, not the Space Needle) is a great place for kids. On weekdays it often has live music or folk dancing, and the Children's Museum downstairs is a delight. The food court has a variety of offerings too.

    the Pacific Science Center is a fun place for kids. Down by the pier and ferrys there are neat shops as well. The Space Needle is always a hit.
