We struggle with this question all the time. More and more we find ourselves unwilling to do the “touristy” stuff in Seattle – we’d much rather just enjoy our own neighborhood haunts & our backyard.
Sometimes we do need to shake it up, though. This was a day where everything was going wrong – taking too long, closed, had long lines, etc – until we finally hit on the dancing fountain at Seattle Center. The girls ran in circles for an hour and all went home happy. There *might* have been some poutine consumed in the Armory, and a collegiate pep band *may* have set up an impromptu set in the park, too. This part of the city is packed with expensive museums and sightseeing opportunities…..but sometimes the free and easy option is plenty.
