There are many fun things to do in Seattle without breaking the bank.

If you plan to bring your moving boxes to the Pacific Northwest, then you may find a number of different spots that can keep you busy. There are many cities in the region that can be both great places to live, but also areas that can give you a number of activities on a given day. If Seattle is your preferred spot, then you may want to do some homework. There are many different things you can do here, and all you have to do to get started is to contact your moving company about a relocation.

Seattle Center Monorail
One option that may be fun for the whole family is to check out the Seattle Center Monorail. According to Frommer's, this is not a particularly long ride, but it can give you a nice view of the city. It covers an area that is walkable in approximately 30 minutes, and you can ride right up to the Space Needle. This was initially created for the World's Fair when the city hosted it in the early 1960s. It may be one of the best ways to see the city from above the ground.

Olympic Sculpture Park
For those who are interested in art, you may not want to miss an opportunity to walk through the Olympic Sculpture Park. This area is approximately nine acres, according to National Geographic. It has multiple outdoor art options from famous sculptors. Traversing the park is easy, as there is a long walking path throughout the park. When you are done seeing all of the offerings in the area, the path allows you to walk right to the beach.

The city has plenty of waterfront, and there are many ways to experience the nice views and take in the parks and shoreline. According to Frommer's There are some good parks to do this including Seward Park, Golden Gardens Park and Discovery Park. These locations can give you a relaxing time outside, or an ability to go right up to the water. The coast of the city also may be great to check out the sunset. If you are looking to do this, it may be the best option to check out Myrtle Edwards Park or even Bell Street Pier.

Pike Place Market
Another staple for those visiting the Emerald City for the first time is the local market area. Pike Place Market has been around for decades, and it spans more than nine acres, according to National Geographic. There are many places to purchase goods in the area, but some of the other attractions may give you even more reason to go. One of the more unique options is the Gum Wall, located in the Post Alley section. Another item to check out is a large bronze piggy bank named Rachel, which is one of the most iconic items in the area.

Washington Park Arboretum
If you and your family are big fans of flora and the outdoors, then another spot that you can really benefit from checking out is the Washington Park Arboretum. This spot may be best to check out in the spring, according to Frommer's. Once the weather starts to warm up, this area has a vast amount of flowers and other plants that bloom, making it a very colorful location. This could be the best spot in the city to check out local plant life. The Washington Park Arboretum is affordable, as there is no cost to see all of the plants it has to offer.
