You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Puget Sound Express and Sky View Observatory. Chihuly Garden and Glass and Seattle Art Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Next up on the itinerary: pick up some local products at Pike Place Market, enjoy breathtaking views from Space Needle, make a trip to Pioneer Square, and examine the collection at The Museum of Flight.
