We are a family of 4 traveling through Seattle to Vancouver then back to Seattle...by train.
My husband booked this train trip, with only a stopover (few hours) in Seattle then we head to Vancouver for 2 days. We are returning to Seattle on July 4th and then fly our late/sat early/sunday am. So, essentially we have one night in Seattle...friday the 4th. We have 2 kids with us, 20 and 17...and they love being in the thick of things (within reason).
Considering we are only staying one night we are willing to spend plenty on a hotel to have an awesome location (walking distance to lots of sights) and maybe the best place to try and make reservation to see fireworks. We love vintage type shopping and/or record stores...anythingthat isn't a chain department store or too touristy.
Any advice someone is willing to share...if the space needle would just be ridiculous then we will skip it...or maybe go saturday?
need advice how to spend 36hours in Seattle!
