My brother is getting married and I'm flying out from Chicago.

All suggestions welcomed.

Thanks Gang.

No promises in this part of the country but you should be safe from rain in Sept. "Normally" it starts about mid-Oct.

What are you looking for in Seattle? Shops, restaurants, local sights etc.?

Pike Place Market is always at the top of any list of places I tell people to go in Seattle.

Do you have kids? I always like Gas Works park and kite flying there. Awesome steady wind, great views. Ballard Locks are cool. As far as beaches check out Shoreline beach. Not many people and good sand, reasonable tide pools.

Things I did not care for was Experiance Music Project and the cost of going to the top of the Space Needle.

Restaurants mostly but things to do would be nice.

Thanks Everyone. Won't be traveling with kids this time. :)

The Wild Ginger and Etta's from me then. There are many other good places to eat but those are a couple of my favorites.

There are a few really good Dim Sum places, butt my fav isn't there any more. King Barbecue on King Street is great for Chinese BBQ takeout.
