Things to do in Seattle in the summer

For friends visiting the first week of August:

Check the Seattle Weekly's calendar to see if there's anything interesting going on. Also check The Stranger's calendar.

Early August is mainly Seafair here. I think the Blue Angels might be buzzing Seattle while you're here. The fleet may be in as well (at which point downtown fills up with sailors and everyone - well, at least those who are into sailors in uniform - goes all a-twitter).

Let's see, there's also First Thursday - monthly art gallery etc walkaround in Pioneer Square. Guess what night that is....

If you have an urge to ride in a ridiculous vehicle blowing a quacker, Riding the Duck is actually a nice way to get a tour of parts of Seattle.

You can also take one of the ferry tours, but to be honest, just taking the regular WA DOT ferry round trip over to Vashon or Bremerton, wandering around on the other end for an hour or three, and then taking the ferry back, is better imho. Very nice way to spend a morning/lunch, but the weather has a better chance of being sunny later in the morning.

Pshew! Ok, somebody else pitch in some ideas, I'm empty for now.

(Mel says the underground tour.)
