Going to be in Seattle all day Saturday with a lot of free time. First time there, what are the must see things and good places to eat for lunch and dinner?

Link Posted: 4/25/2014 10:42:19 AM EDT
Museum of flight. Worthy it fur the Blackbird, Concorde, Corsairs.
Pikes market if you like extremely crowded places.

Otherwise, you can kill a day on the tourist trap wharf easy. Lits of cool stuff ther

Buy Russell Wilson a hooker,not one from Seattle though,have one flown in from FL or something.

There is a florist shop named "Young Flowers." In the courtyard, right next to the shop in front of the Starbucks are Robert Graham's "dance column 1 and 2", two small bronze sculptures of nude female dancers, complete with hairless cameltoes.

Not worth making a special trip, but if you happen to be at 3rd and Spring, you should sneak a peek. I always thought it was funny given the name of the flower shop.

Breaded and deep-fried. They're delicious when they're fresh. If you happen to see them on a menu, consider trying them.

Check out Pike Place Market and the water front. Also, if you have time the EMP is good for a few hours of entertainment.

If you have kids, the Pacific Science Center is cool and they have an IMAX Theater.

Right now the are showing:
- D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944
- Journey To The South Pacific 3D
- Island of Lemurs: Madagascar 3D
- Transcendence: The IMAX Experience

Edit: Check out Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub. Is downtown in Post Alley.

They are very good, but you won't normally find fresh ones in Seattle. They are still good if they have been frozen.

Yum. ComScore look good. Hope I can get some crabs too. Haven't had any decent seafood since I lef VA a few years ago.

I should be able to get a discount then!

EMP is a good time. The piers/pikes place market. LeMay Car Museum. The Crab Pot for food or do the dinner Argosy cruise. Pyramid Ale House, or if you have a car go to the RedHook Brewery in Woodinville. The Glass Museum in Tacoma is supposed to be cool. Gun wise I dont know about Seattle actual but south a little ways you have Surplus Ammo & Arms Tacoma store and right down the street from that is the Bullseye.

If you are on the water front and want some crab, hit up The Crab Pot.

Possibly.In all honesty I thought the aquarium was really cool,Seattle is pretty much a hipster town though.The rest of Washington is beautiful.

I like Pike Place Market.

I've heard about the Weyerhaeuser bonsai collection and I'm a big fan of the little trees. It is apparently in Federal Way, but I was always on too tight a schedule to see it.

Was the Kalakala ever fixed up? It was an art deco ferry from the 30's. - Never mind, it's a navigation hazard and too fragile to move.

The Ballard Locks are pretty cool with the fish ladders and awesome Chriscraft cabin cruisers.

There are also a bunch of houseboats that are actually floating houses rather than boats you live on.

Go see the Experience Music museum and marvel at how Frank Gehry ever got a job as an architect.

Pioneer Square.

Seattle Underground.

Everyone said 13 Coins for food, it was great! Then hit Snoqualmie Falls, have a beer in the Attic (overlooks the falls). Enjoy left lane campers and roads that are way way too loud. Like they dont know how to put a sealing layer on em or something.
Just walking around downtown was an experience... some sort of anime festival was going on when I was there so lots of "interesting" costumes.

I always liked Elliot's Oyster house as well, just for the oyster bar. Lots of selection.

Even better, grab a cheap oyster knife, a sack of oysters, and some fresh local sourdough and eat at Alki on one of the beaches while enjoying the view. Plenty of halibut fish and chips or steamed manilla clams are available in that area as well.

Only one Corsair, now. They took out the F2G and R4360 display. Still worth going there, though.

Uwajimaya is the asian mall.

If you're going to head to Everett, might as well stop by HERE , that is if you like vintage WWII airplanes. They fly them at summer time, good show.

The Boeing Museum is worth seeing.

The independent, non-profit Museum of Flight is one of the largest air and space museums in the world, attracting more than 500,000 visitors annually. The Museum's collection includes over 150 historically significant air- and spacecraft, as well as the Red Barn®—the original manufacturing facility of The Boeing Co., the original papers of the Wright brothers, and the one-of-a-kind NASA Space Shuttle Trainer, used to train every space shuttle astronaut since the inception of the program. Among the most popular exhibits at the Museum are the world's first fighter plane, the first jet Air Force One, the prototype Boeing 747, the West Coast's only Concorde, and the world's fastest aircraft – the Blackbird spy plane. More than just an attraction, however, the Museum is a hub of science, technology, engineering, and math education, serving over 150,000 participants each year through on-site and outreach programs and the Museum's aviation and space library and archives are the largest on the West Coast, holding more than 1.4 million images. The Museum of Flight is accredited by the American Associations of Museums, and is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.

There is a ton of stuff to do, but if I had to choose for 1 day:

Ferris Wheel
Pike Place Market
Chihuly Glass Museum/Space Needle
UW Campus
Ivar's towards gaswork/gasworks for the view

That basically starts you in downtown and works you slightly North.

Yeah...most of the glass work [rather spectacular] is not even done by Chihuly...it's done by his "students"
