    Describe some of the best activities for a visitor to Seattle, Washington.

    Specifically, looking for fun and interesting activities and attractions that a father and teenage daughter could do together while visiting Seattle.

    I've been living in Seattle for just over six years now, and my #1 piece of advice is bring a raincoat and shoes that withstand the wet, and after that there's plenty of fun stuff to do.

    You both will love Seattle, there is so much to do. Pikes Place market for starters, then the space needle and the restaurants - wow I could go on and on. The arts, just talk a walk along lake union with an ice cream cone in your hand.....enjoy!

    I've lived in Seattle all my life and still always find something new to check out. EMP is always fun to visit. Ye Old Curiosity Shoppe is where my dad used to take my sister and I when we were younger, which is one of our favorite shared memories.

    I lived in Seattle for a while, and I loved the troll under the bridge.  A must!  There is a lot of other great street art to see-- and finding it takes you off the beaten path.  The dance steps on the sidewalk, the Jimi Hendrix statue, the miniature Statue of Liberty on Alki (great view of downtown Seattle from there as well).

    Definitely start at Pike Place! Its a huge open marketplace with fresh foods and really interesting stuff (last time I was there, I found chocolate pasta). There's also a ton of handmade jewelry, sculptures, and paintings as well. The Space Needle might seem touristy, but it really is a fantastic view and although its not cheap, the spinning restaurant at the top has some of the best food I've ever had. Just walking around the city is fun, there are a lot of cool little shops and restaurants!
