I will be in Seattle landing on July 1st around 1AM and heading back home on July 3rd evening around 10. I have some work on July 2nd evening but rest all I am free!

What can be be done and look around? Any idea and recommendation :)

Any good hotel to stay near ISSAQUAH, WA 98027 but not to expensive :)

Classic places are Pike's Place Market, Science Center, Space Needle, Seattle Underground (tour), maybe a ferry ride. If you're interested in construction you might see if that 5-story tunneling machine is still around (it's been digging an underground freeway). This old thread has some other suggestions I'm less familiar with. A search of the Forums shows that there have been a lot of GTGs there, so I imagine more (better) suggestions will be along soon ... :-(

Earlier thread ...

Lots of things to do in Seattle...

Link of things to do in Seattle.

I think Museum of Pop Culture (formerly Experience Music Project) is a must.

Take a peek at caba's page. He took cool photos of the Space Needle from Kerry Park.

As far as nice hotels, I've stayed at this one when in Issaquah Hilton Garden Inn.

Have fun in Seattle.

From Issaquah you might want to go to the mountains instead. Very pretty that time of year.

The salmon will probably be jumping at the Ballard locks around that time. The locks are probably my favorite Seattle thing, with or without salmon.

Bertha the tunnel boring machine just finished her dig a couple of weeks ago. There was nothing to see there anyway.

If you want the big view, the Columbia Center is half the price of the Space Needle, and has a better view.

Bring a credit card and expect to pay for parking, wherever you go.

As far as I'm concerned, a Ferry ride to and drive around Whidbey Island is a must-do, the highlight being Deception Pass State Park.

Lots of great suggestions already! If it was my first time in Seattle, I'd try and see all the typical tourist sites:

- Seattle Center has LOTS to see all in one area: Space Needle (but not pay to go to the top - as mentioned try Columbia Center or Smith Tower), EMP, Chihuly Glass Garden. You can also jump on the Duck tour from Seattle Center.

- Waterfront area: Newly revamped Pike Place Market, Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Wheel.

I may be in Eastern Washington in Early July, but feel free to PM me a day or two before you get here and maybe we can get together.
