+1 for the Experience Music Project museum, very near the Space Needle & Chihuly glass museum. If you like old war planes and tanks, consider heading north to Paul Allen's warbirds museum: Flying Heritage Collection - Home

As mentioned, come out to Woodinville wine country and see the Hollywood School House, where DW and I were married

Fremont troll is neat. Real neat.

Underground tour is cool; couple that with the Museum Of History And Industry (MOHAI) and you get a real feel for the relatively short history of the city.

Crab Pot is wonderful, but I personally avoid it. I always gorge and feel ill for about two days afterwards.

Dukes is another great seafood place. The two best Dukes, scenery wise, are on Ruston, near the Chihully Museum in Tacoma, and on Alki Beach in West Seattle.
I live in West Seattle and wanted to chime in there is a water taxi that will take you there from DT Seattle pier (12 minute trip). From there one of the cool restaurants is Salty's just 500 feet south of where the water taxi docks. Cheers.

I'd skip Salty's and go to Marination instead, which is right at the dock. (http://marinationmobile.com/#about).

The water taxi is a nice ride, especially when the weather is nice. There's also a free shuttle that goes from the pier to either Alki or West Seattle (opposite directions).

Alki can be a nice place to visit and there are a few good restaurants there. If you go to Alki, I'd recommend Cactus, which serves Southwestern/Mexican food and somebody else mentioned Duke's, which is also on Alki.

I don't recall when you'll be here, but Alki also has beach volleyball at times, which can be fun to watch. Not to mention great views of the city, especially at night.

That's great. I checked it out and this is very doable!

Thanks! I looked at Marination when checking the Salty reviews and I may have to go with the Marination recommendation.
