Top Five Fun Things to Do with Your Kids in Seattle

Many parents spend a lot of time thinking about fun things to entertain and educate their kids. Quality time can be tough to schedule on the best of days, but researching what to do can be an unaffordable luxury of time. We’ve put together five sure-fire hits for your family no matter what your interests are.

The Museum of Flight

Since it’s the home of Boeing, one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of aircraft, it makes sense that Seattle would have one of the nation’s biggest collections of air and space material. At the Museum of Flight, you can even tour vintage airplanes, including the very first Presidential jet.


After you’ve experienced the history of flight, why not experience flight itself at iFly. Here, anyone over the age of three can go indoor skydiving. Using specially designed chambers with massive updraft, you’ll be weightless and flying.


If your family is the competitive type, try out GameWorks, a two-story arcade filled with video and sports games. Take each other on head-to-head in racing, dancing, shooting, and everything else technology has to offer.

Seattle Children’s Museum

Seattle’s Children’s Museum is the city’s premier place for imaginative, engaging learning. Everything is designed to be hands-on with lessons and knowledge that is discovered, not lectured. In the shadow of the Space Needle at Seattle Center, there’s a lot to see and do.

Seattle Aquarium

If your family likes their entertainment a bit more lively, the Aquarium is a sure bet. With aquatic life ranging from deep sea squids to arctic puffins to playful colonies of otters, this under-water adventure never disappoints.
