I've one addition to the excellent list of places to see suggested by Jim...the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and fish ladder in Ballard. I first came here when I was about 6 years old and returned last year with my wife, 39 years later. I don't know whether it was nostalgia or what but I found it just as enchanting as when I was a child. And Sara loved it too. An added attraction is it's proximity to a nice seafood restaurant called Ray's Boathouse from the deck of which we watched a bald eagle hunt for lunch.
