Things to do in Seattle...

So me and my lady are going to Seattle for New Years, have a few things planned. Staying downtown in an air bnb walking distance to pikes.
We have a small itinerary of touristy things to do, but want to know if there is
We plan on visiting the og Starbucks for ****s and giggles.
Definitely seeing the space needle
Have a few other things we got in a ticket book type deal for local attractions.
Anything else we NEED to checkout while there.
Also a side note, we will meet with a cousin of mine who lives in the area, but still would like suggestions.
Thanks everyone!!

One of my favorite things on the "tourist-y" spectrum was the Underground Tour. Very interesting.

If you have a few hours to kill and want to ride a boat for pretty cheap, you can take the Bainbridge Island or Bremerton Ferry. It's a great way to get out on the water and see the sound, and it's priced for commuters. Bainbridge is definitely the more upscale of the two destinations, but Bremerton has the Navy Shipyard if that interests you (usually a couple aircraft carriers and several subs in dock. They aren't easy to see from the public side, but there is a really neat Navy museum right next to the ferry terminal).

Will you have a car? How long are you staying?

Since you'll be doing the space needle, right below it is the Museum of Pop Culture. Its got a mix of music, movies, sci fi and horror exhibits. As a giant nerd I wanted to spend all my time in the Sci Fi hall of fame, but the rest of the museum is pretty cool too.

Food wise... Jeez there's too many to name. You'll be eating well for sure.

I lived there while attending school in the mid 90's and there was a very cool underground tour. Its a city under the city, kind of spooky and interesting. Pikes place brewery if still there and market are a great place to check out and have some great food and drink.

Most likely at a Tom Douglas establishment.

Seattle f'n LOVES Tom Douglas.



Anyhow, the Cinerama is worth seeing if something good is playing (it'll probably be Star Wars at that time of year). Get the half butter, half chocolate popcorn. OR, skip the movie, and just get the half butter, half chocolate popcorn.

If you have a chance rent a car and drive to Ballard to see the locks and try to go do a tour at the Boeing plant. Both are very cool. You could probably stop at the locks after the tour of Boeing.

Can I recommend staying in Ballard or Capitol hill instead of downtown? There's a lot of homelessness in the core, and it's easy enough to take an Uber down there to see the market from anywhere else.
