I am arriving in Seattle on a Thursday evening, and spending 2 nights in Seattle before leaving on the Princess Ruby in Saturday 7/28/18 for Alaska. So, Friday 7/27 is the only full day I have in Seattle for sightseeing. Please help me figure out best way to spend the day.
I'm staying at the Four Seasons. I'm traveling with my husband and 2 young adult boys. I only want to see the most important (yes, I know that is very subjective) sights, I would like a somewhat relaxed day, no stressing about running all over the place.
So far I'm thinking, walk over to Pikes Market late morning with a stop at the Gum Wall, around 9 or 10 am and spend a few hours there, maybe have lunch there. Then go over to the Space Needle in the early afternoon and walk around that area. Should I get my tickets ahead of time and plan maybe a 1 or 2 pm ticket? What are the must sees in that area? Is it worth it to go over to the International District, maybe for dinner? What is the best mode of transportation with this itinerary? Uber, or is there a monorail type transportation that would take me to these 3 areas? Any other must-sees near those areas?
Thanks in advance?
