We (DW and 4 kids ages 8-16) will be arriving in Seattle (by car) late afternoon to early evening on July 4th. Our hotel is the Holiday Inn Express a block east of Space Needle. If we walk or take the SLU.T (which do you recommend?) to South Lake Union park, would this be a good place to watch the fireworks? If not, where would be that would be reasonable for walking, parking, etc.?
Where would be a step up from fast food but reasonably priced (say $10-$20) dinner option in this area?
We only have the next day to see/experience Seattle, and the next day I am planning on using City Passes for the following itenerary:
Space Needle 9:30am
Monorail to Pike Market
Argosy Harbor Cruise (11 am)
Monorail back to Seattle Center (hopefully by mid-afternoon)
Pacific Science Center (couple of hours- we've been to SoCal science center recently)
EMP (hour or two??)
dinner (your suggestions would help)
Space Needle for night view of city.
Am I biting off more than I can chew with an overly ambituous itenerary for the day?
Is there something in the area that you would do instead of some of the above?Edited: 01 May 2013, 05:28
