It’s Seattle, so bring an umbrella and baby carrier.
Keep in mind that rain is very common in Seattle. Middle of October worked out perfectly for us.
Try to bring snacks and water to avoid any unnecessary food purchases.
This full-day itinerary hits some great Seattle attractions for kids and adults. This was our first day in Seattle and our goal was to feel out the city by eating its food, walking its streets and seeing it all from above. Start off the day at Sweet Iron Waffle Bar, which has great options for sweet and savory waffles. Then, begin the walking tour and head out to Pier 56. Catch some great views along Elliott Bay. Next, take a leisurely stroll up to the Space Needle and get a bird’s-eye view of Seattle. It may seem touristy but not only are the views great, it has a playground for the kids. Lastly, a trip to Seattle with kids, or for anyone, wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Pike Place Market. The food choices are endless and enticing (we grabbed something at Pike’s Pit Bar-B-Que). All in all, this walking tour offers a great balance of things to do in Seattle with kids.
