Recommendations

 

Plan on spending the day. Spend time in the Chihuly Gardens and Glass Museum then walk around the center to the Space Needle, EMP, and/ or the Pacific Science Center. You can save money by purchasing tickets for the Needle and Chihuly Gardens & Glass together ($34 per adult). Purchase your tickets online for the best prices. Chihuly Gardens & Glass is near an area called Lower Queen Anne. This is to the North of the Seattle Center. Walk over a few blocks to eat and soak up the local flavor.
The cost of parking and traffic can be cumbersome. Take a bus if possible or the Metrorail from downtown. It is much easier and economical. If you decide to park, there are cheaper parking lots on the east and north sides of the Seattle Center which are a bit cheaper.
