Pike Place Market. If it's a clear day, have lunch in the restaurant at the top of the Space Needle. The food is excellent and the wine list has won awards. Reservations required. If you're a music buff, go to Experience Music Project, which is near the base of the Needle. If you have time, rent a kayak at Aqua Verde at the north end of Lake Union and paddle around the houseboats on the lake. And there's a deck and good Mexican food at Aqua Verde, too. Also, consider doing a Duck boat tour when you first get to town. They're a lot of fun for adults and kids alike. The driver tells you about the city's history, and you see a lot. about 7 years ago
Hiram shirts den locks in ballard...watch the boats traverse between sea level and lake level...and if you are lucky view salmon in the underwater window area. I was there last weekend and there were a lot of salmon to see. The gardens ate also gorgeous bring a lunch, nice views from high up. almost 7 years ago
If you're into aviation you can do a trimmed down tour of the Boeing Complex http://www.boeing.com/commercial/tours/index.html
Also visit the Flight Musemn http://www.museumofflight.org/ where a decomissioned Concorde and former Presidential plane are parked.
Pioneer Square for great street entertainment.
Tillicum Village on Blake Island Native Cultural Experience & Salmon Bake (very touristy & cheesy but a different experience) http://www.tillicumvillage.com/.
In Pike Market make sure you don;t get hit in the face by a flying fish, well a material one thrown by the fishmongers as they sing their entertaining shanty songs. almost 7 years ago
