The Seattle Space Needle has been delighting visitors ever since its debut in the 1962 World’s Fair -- and it’s still a beloved attraction for locals and tourists alike. It’s the most iconic sight in the Seattle skyline and, for most people taking a trip to the Emerald City, it’s at the top of the "must do" list (it also tops our list of things to do with kids that parents also love!).
Just as unique as its people, Seattle is home to a variety of Seattle attractions meant to entertain visitors near or far. One such attraction is the Seattle Aquarium. Here, the Puget Sound and nearby waters are celebrated in a well-designed space that introduces locals and visitors to the fascinating creatures that dwell just outside in the waters of the Pacific Northwest and illustrates how conservation efforts will allow such an incredibly diverse ecosystem to thrive.
At Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP, previously the EMP Museum), visitors can celebrate pop culture and its rock 'n' roll roots and delve into the sensational films, television shows, and music that made Trekkies immortal and Jimi Hendrix a legend.
Too often, children get depicted as chicken-nugget-fueled, plastic-loving, unrefined maniacs. In reality, though, kids are eager learners looking to explore and make sense of the world in their own way. Being that NYC is abundantly rich in history, culture, and panache, it seems like a no-brainer kind of place to help kids along on their journey. Yet some still wonder whether the Big Apple is kid-friendly.
On September 11, 2001, most of America stopped in its tracks. The shocking events that took place on that tragic day pulled Americans—and much of the rest of the world—away from their busy lives to feel waves of complex emotion. Many years later, the day brings the country together in a reflective moment of silence. September 11 is a day that should never, and will never, be forgotten.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, known to locals and ardent supporters as "The Met Museum" (or just "The Met"), is one of the most popular museums in the city. This iconic institution boasts over two million pieces of artwork, collectibles and antiquities that span 5,000 years. If you’re planning a trip to New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is not to be missed.
