The Seattle Aquarium is fun and so is the ferris wheel if its a nice day. You will have a car so the Boeing tour is amazing and so is the Museum of Flight. If money is no object then Kenmore Air will take you in a float plane out of Lake Union and you will see the beauty of the Northwest. If you plan to do a ferry ride then how about coordinating that with a visit and dinner at Tillicum Village. Unique and an interesting view into the history of the Northwest Salish Tribe. Super fun!

We went to Seattle over the summer and one of the most memorable places we visited was the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center. Even my 10 & 14 year old children were impressed by what they learned there.

We enjoyed visiting Bainbridge Island. We rented rowboats there and enjoyed an afternoon. Also the wooden boats are fun to look at!

I found Chittenden Locks in the Ballard area of Seattle very interesting. Although the salmon will not be running when you are there, you can see the fish "ladders" that are in place so they can bypass the locks.

Snoqualmie Falls

If you drive to see the Ballard Locks, it's not too far to Snoqualmie Falls. Both are worth the trip. (At least we thought so.)

ETA
annie_g (see below) knows more about the distance than I do. It's been a few years since we were there. What I remember, about distance, is that we visited both of them the same day, and the day was not extremely long.

Thanks, hive mind. We might be able to do all of that.

Seattle is my hometown, more specifically Ballard, which is not close to Snoqualmie Falls. However, the Ballard Locks and Snoqualmie Falls are both worth seeing. When you go to the Ballard Locks, drive a little further to Golden Gardens beach!

I grew up 1.5 hours from there but visited quite often as a kid. The Space Needle is amazing...if you donít mind heights!

MathWa is correct about the Museum of Flight and the Boeing tour. Great activities. Of course everyone loves Pikeís Place Market. If you take the Boeing Tour at Paine Field near Everett home of the 747, 767, 777, and 787, you can take a ferry from Mukilteo to Clinton on Whidbey Island and drive up the island over Deception Pass and then back to Seattle via I-5.

Another place to visit is Alki Beach and the lighthouse there.

Enjoy the city.
