Seattle Aquarium

*The Seattle Aquarium!
One of my favorite places to meander for an hour or so with Roo on a rainy day. 

Some of the reasons I love this place so much are: the easy accessibility, the entertainment it provides, and the duration of our stay can easily vary. Kids love petting the star fish, watching the octopus spread it's tentacles, playing with the felt board, walking around the tropical fish, trying to interact with the harbor seals, and watching the river otters wrestle. The aquarium has the ability to capture your child's attention for hours or can quickly be walked through if you are on a time crunch

The Location:
1483 Alaskan Way, Pier 59
Seattle, WA 98101-2015

The Hours:
9:30am - 5:00pm

*The Cost: 
Youth (4 -12yrs)
Children 3 & Under

*Membership Cost: (per year)
Individual       $69
Family          $139
Family Plus  $179

Yes the cost is more on the pricey end for a small outing, but I recommend talking to your nanny family about looking into a membership. There are different levels to suit your family's needs. This is a place you can go monthly if not weekly for a day out of the house; membership costs tend to save money after about the 4th visit.

The Aquarium also has Toddler Time a various mornings each month. Click here for their updated calendar of events. A fun indoor activity to participate in during our rainy winters.

Bear loves the atmosphere of the aquarium; from touching a starfish to running around with the harbor seals - it is a place of delight. Bug's attention is even captured with all the bright colors and fish.

With a staff that genuinely seems to enjoy interacting and educating children the aquarium gets this gals vote! So if you are looking for a place to get out of the house on a rainy day (or sunny one) the Seattle Aquarium makes the list.
