Mt. St. Helens to Seattle - 2 Night Stay

I will be driving from Mt. St. Helens to Seattle a week from Tuesday, later afternoon. I would like to stay in Seattle Tuesday night and then on Wednesday morning do the following with my 15 year old son: Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe, Underground Tour, EMP.... On Wednesday night at about 6 ish I have to be in Redmond. Thursday morning we elave at 8 from SeaTac...I am having difficulty trying to figure out what hotel to stay in in SEattle, what to do with my rental car and how is the traffic going to affect me on Wednesday afternoon...Any ideas would be much appreciated!!!

since you have a car I'd suggest stayiing near the Space Needle. Parking is generally free in that area (Seattle Center) and some of the things your interested in you could start from the Space Needle and not need your car. Click on my name and read the inside page for one day itinerary without a car. Traffic to Redmond will be hard but not all that bad with planning. The 520 bridge is closer to you than I-90. Even though 90 has a carpool lane its more of a pain once you hit 405. The 520 bridge backs up, but once on the bridge its pretty clear sailing to Redmond. Allow one hr and I think you'll be fine. As soon as you get off the bridge there is a carpool lane you can use all the way to Redmond
