Best places to eat and explore on business trip to greater Seattle Area?

I will be traveling to the greater Seattle Area next week for a 5 day stay. I will be traveling to various locations (Auburn, Frederickson & Everett) during the day but have the opportunity to explore during the evenings. Any suggestions for good places to eat, explore and take in the sights during the evenings? I love nature and would love to get out to see the ocean some evening!

You're so lucky. I'm from the Greater Seattle area and there is no better part of the country to be in this time of year!
To note: Auburn (Washington) is very south of Seattle and Everett is very north.
While up north, near Everett, catch the ferry and go to San Juan Islands Almost, if not already whale watching season! Once there, Friday Harbor is a very small island-minded community and it's got a great small town party feel. Great scenic bike riding.

If you're limited to just the evenings, you probably don't have enough time to get out to the ocean or the San Juan Islands, but you can easily explore some of Puget Sound. 

When you're up in Everett drive over to Mukilteo and take the ferry over to Clinton on Whidbey Island, its only a 30 minute ride, but will give you some nice views, should be lots of nice spots for dinner, either on Whidbey or Mukilteo or Edmonds.

From Auburn you could take an evening drive down towards Mt Rainier, either Enumclaw, Greenwater, or Eatonville  will all get you pretty close to the mountain, but still be doable in an evening drive.

From the Fredrickson site, you might head into Tacoma, the old downtown area is being rejuvenated, there is the Museum of Glasswith lots of glasswork by Dale Chihuly, and the LeMay - America's Car Museum, and if you drive Ruston Way, there are several nice spots for dinner or a drink right on the waterfront.

Snoqualmie Falls is another idea for an evening, its a short drive, and there are lots of places to eat in North Bend after you've viewed the falls.

My favorite restaurant is 13 Coins Seattle near Sea-Tac. The food and service are top notch (Danny). A vast menu of steaks, chops, fresh seafood, pasta,,,

You could jump right to it for dinner if your flight arrives in the evening. Or maybe lunch on departure. 

And I know this sounds goofy, but if the weather's good have lunch at the Space Needle. I recall the food being just OK 30 years ago. 

The attraction, however, is the view. In an hour you see it all Mt. Ranier and the Cascade Range, the Sound, the Coast Range and the amazing city that is Seattle.
