Seattle, Washington is a destination that should be at the top of your family vacation planning list. It is an exciting city that is surrounded by lots of natural beauty and there is so much to see and do that there is something for everyone. It is a place that is sure to leave lasting memories, making it a wonderful family vacation destination. That’s why I’m excited to share these fun things to do in Seattle for families.
Space Needle & SkyCity
Seattle offers a number of fun ways to see the city and the Space Needle is a family favorite. Travel upwards 520 feet for a spectacular view of the city and even Mount Rainier. It’s open Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. – 12 a.m., so you can travel to the top during the light of day or enjoy the city lights at night. You can even dine at 500 feet at the SkyCity Restaurant. The restaurant revolves, giving you a panoramic view of the city, and every visit to SkyCity includes a free trip to the Space Needle’s observation deck. Before your trip, check out the Pano Cam on the Space Needle’s website, where you can get a virtual near real time panoramic view, check out the timelapse, and see best views from the past.
Chihuly Garden & Glass
While at the Space Needle, this nearby attraction is not to be missed — Chihuly Garden & Glass. It is a long-term exhibit in the Seattle Center and is one that your family will never forget. It is a comprehensive collection of colorful and vibrant glass artwork from Dale Chihuly. Outside, you can wander through the gardens and see the sunlight shine through the sculptures among beautiful camellias, daylilies, fuschias, and more. Inside, intricate and beautiful glasswork hangs from the ceiling or is showcased in the eight galleries and Glasshouse. There is also a theater with videos that show Chihuly’s working process and you can watch the team work in the hotshop and create these memorable works of art.
