Things to Do With Kids in Seattle

No matter what age your children are or what they enjoy doing, Seattle has plenty to do and see. From the outdoors—there are more than 400 parks with more than 6,200 acres of land—to museums kids will love and attractions that are family friendly, there is more than enough to fill your day.

Seattle’s temperate climate means it’s easy to spend at least part of the day outside—and on the rainy days, not much beats jumping in puddles. Sunny days, join the rest of the city out-of-doors: A good spot to visit is Seattle Center’s International Fountain, where kids can chase the water jets and parents can keep an eye on them from a dry spot.

This city also has some amazing spots to learn about animals, from a zoo right in the city to our amazing aquarium on the waterfront. Below, some top spots to check out with your children while in town.
