The Seattle Center Monorail has been shuttling riders a mile across the city since its first appearance during the World’s Fair in 1962. Today, it delivers more than two million passengers annually from Seattle Center to WestLake Center along 5th Avenue. Two trains, the Red Train and the Blue Train, operate on the rail system; each has a capability of transporting 250 passengers. Together they can serve 6,000 passengers every hour. The front seat of the train is next to the driver, which gives children and parents alike a great view. Another cool aspect to the monorail is that it goes right through MoPOP, the Museum of Pop Culture.

Theo Chocolate sprang from founder, Joe Whinney’s sense of social justice. This company’s brief history is as rich and delicious as its chocolate. An avid traveler, Joe spent a lot of time with cacao farmers in different parts of the world and was concerned by their exploitation. That led to him championing organic cocoa beans and Fair Trade in the States, which in turn led to Theo Chocolate as the country’s first certified organic chocolatier. Visitors can learn all about the journey from sustainably grown, organic Fair Trade beans to delectable chocolate – “from bean to bar” – as he calls it. This tour is not only wildly popular with kids for the chocolate samples along the way, but for the fascinating story and process behind them.

Seattle Center Fountain is one of many fun attractions on the Seattle Center campus. Located in the middle of an expansive lawn and set in a concrete “bowl”, this domed water sculpture centerpiece provides kids with hours of exciting water play on a warm sunny day. When it was originally built for the World’s Fair in 1962 it was surrounded by white rock and wasn’t very kid-friendly. Completely rebuilt 30 years later, it’s now a safe, comfortable, and exciting place for kids to get wet and wild with nearly 275 water misters, sprayers, and shooters. Parents will particularly enjoy the five, 12-minute water shows set to music.
