Seattle is a great place for family fun! Regardless of age, it’s easy to find appropriate activities for the whole gang. These are a few Seattle Washington activities to consider.
There’s always something going on at Seattle Center, which is why it’s one of the area’s to tourist destinations! It’s free to play at the Artists at Play playground, which is home to a 30-foot climbing tower. Wander around the gardens and when weather permits play in the water from the International Fountain. Here’s an interesting fact: this sprawling complex was the site of the 1962 World’s Fair.
Kelsey Creek Farm
Kelsey Creek Farm is open 365 days a year from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Your kids will love interacting with the animals and playing on the playground. The farm is a great place for a picnic. A picnic shelter is open from dawn to dusk. No reservation required and visiting the farm is free.
Fremont Sunday Market
The Fremont Sunday Market opened to the public in 1990. You and the kids will have tons of fun shopping until you drop! Accommodating up to 200 vendors, this huge flea market is open rain or shine. Put on your “haggling shoes” and get ready to bargain with the best of them.

This makes me think it’d be fun to do a round up of all the World’s Fair locations in the USA. That fountain looks so cool!
These are fantastic ideas! I’ve never heard of some of them!
