Kid Friendly Attractions in Seattle

From chocolate to bugs (but not chocolate covered bugs), Seattle has you covered when it comes to family fun with the kids. Many of the city's best kid-friendly attractions are downtown, although a few outlying neighborhoods have something to offer families as well.

Like the every-quirky neighborhood of Fremont, home to an honest-to-goodness chocolate factory worthy of Wonka. Visitors who tour the Theo Chocolate Factory will watch the process of organic cocoa bean to delicious chocolate bar happen right in front of their eyes – with plenty of samples for everyone.

Got kids who love animals? The Woodland Park Zoo sprawls over an astonishing 92 acres, the Seattle Aquarium features hands-on tide pool exhibits and smiling sea otters, and the Bug Safari is the place to go for kids who can't get enough of the creepy crawlies – over 50 live insects on display.

Art museums are fantastic, but not always great for the little ones – how about hundreds of real planes and a flight simulation booth at the Museum of Flight instead? The Experience Music Project also has an entire floor devoted to the sound lab, where kids can play guitars, pianos, bass and drums to their heart's content.

The Seattle Center, while an obvious choice, tops our list due to the sheer amount of things available for kids to do. In addition to constant events from concerts to cultural fairs, the Center has permanent amusement park rides, an enormous arcade, fun fair food and plenty of space to run around. Hot outside? Spend the afternoon around the International Fountain, where kids in bathing suits splash freely during the constant musical waterworks show.
