We’re not exactly downtown. A few blocks from some of the main areas. We just didn’t want to stay 30 min away and take an Uber or Lyft anytime we want to go anywhere.
Originally we were staying in Ballard I believe. But we want to be closer, we live in Los Angeles proper, sad to say we are kind of used to homelessness :/

As long as you're not in South Lake Union. Too busy to get lunch during the day, ghost town in the evening and weekends.

Since you'll be at Pike's, bring a pack of gum for the gum wall.

They're really awesome. The coffee shop inside (General Porpoise) is quite good, as well. The policies for non-Amazonians visiting have shifted a few times so just double-check what the rules are before you go.

That's also right near Cinerama. There's a great Mexican fusion place around the corner called Cantina Lena (a Tom Douglas joint™) that has killer nachos.

O grew up around there

Go up the needle, DO NOT eat there. The food is "Ehh" at best

Mo-pop is pretty cool, I'm also partial to Pacific science center who also has a large IMAX theater and one of the largest butterfly houses I know of (yes you go in it), check out the fountain while you are there but I'm not sure if it's doing shows right now or not

The air and space museum is legit (they have a Blackbird and the space shuttle trainer which you can go in, extra fee but worth it)but you'll need a Uber to get there, it's not far

Walk the pier, it's a cool place

It's expensive but if you really want to have a Seattle experience go to a Seahawks game, 12/29 is Seattle vs 49ers, it will be extra expensive since the two teams are rivals but the games are always a fantastic experience. So loud

O! One of my favorite things is century ballroom swing dancing, Sunday nights, 9pm they teach a intro lesson and the dance starts at 930

https://www.centuryballroom.com/home/

$25 each and well worth the admission.

Take a ferry if you have never been on one, they are a cool experience and you can get walk on tickets.

Listen to "the men's room" on 99.9 fm, starts around 4 or 5pm weeknights

I'm sure I will think of more but research those, see what you like.

The underground tours are usually cool, kind of depends on the tour guide. I've never been disappointed but have had some better than others
