Also, if you have a car, Snoqualmie Falls. Would also highly recommend the Boeing Air and Space Museum

If interested in libraries, check out it out. Amazing architecture and attention to detail.

Enjoyed dinner at Wild Ginger.

Friends raved about a chocolate tour.

Second Il Bistro and Serious Pie, two excellent restaurants. Also enjoyed Emmett Watson's Oyster Bar for seafood and a beer.

I posted this on another thread but will ask again - on our last trip we saw the sculpture park from the outside edge - it did not look very appealing. Perhaps it just made a bad impression and we should give it a go on our trip coming up in Aug.?

A new suggestion - we really enjoyed taking the water taxi to West Seattle and renting bikes there.

We are also interested in using the long bike trail - Burke - Gilman (something like that) but not sure how to get there and rent bikes. We will not have a car.

The Savor Seattle tasting tour is $69 per person - seems a bit high - any posters here have experience with that organization. $140 buys a pretty good lunch and dinner for 2!

If you sign up on Goldstar.com you can get the Seattle savor tour for $49 as well as other activities and shows for a better price than the on-line operators. I have used several times in Las Vegas. If free to sigh up, but they offer a pre-pay price if you want additional amenities like cancelltion, etc.

A great, dynamic weekend is possible in Redmond! After a day spent on the climbing wall in Marymoor Park, and a walk around the grounds, dinner, movie, and a drink seemed like just the ticket. iPic Theaters in Redmond Town Center has all three, making it super easy to enjoy a great restaurant, an awesome cocktail, and a movie all in one trip. Perfect way to start off the weekend. Also, since I work with them, I can let you know about a free ticket offer they have going on. Sign up for a free membership and get a free show, with options for more free stuff! Great! http://www.ipictheaters.com/it/socialmedia.aspx Be sure to enter “Redmond” in the Location field.

Sounds like an advertisement for iPic Theaters in Redmond, which isn't on my list for things to do on a three-day trip to Seattle. Also beware of advice to skip Seattle to spend time in Kent, Mukilteo, or Spanaway.

I agree. I'd stick with Seattle for the three days. There will be plenty to see.
Our favourite restaurants for dinner include Wild Ginger, Serious Pie, and Crush. Have always wanted to try the Dahlia Lounge as well.
Our favourite lunch places include Cafe Campagne (great brunch too) and Matt's in the Market. Macrina Bakery is also nice. Wandering and snacking through Pike Place Market is always fun as well!
cheers,
CC
