Best places to spot at KSEA/KBFI?

Fri Jan 12, 2018 12:26 am

Hope this is the correct forum.


I'll possibly be making an unscheduled trip up to SEA for some sightseeing and the Boeing Flight Museum, and wondered about the best places to spot at KSEA or KBFI? I know nothing of the area, so any advice will be appreciated.

Any advice on places to stay (or avoid) in this area? I'll be looking to budget my hotel stay, which comes with compromises. I'll be up with my family and don't wish to wander into unfriendly territories should they exist. I've already had one car stolen this month and don't' wish for that problem again. Maybe something near mass transit where we could hop on a train to the city as I assume I want to avoid parking?

Beyond the other obvious attractions like the space needle, any other can't miss items I can squeeze into a quick weekend? Could be anything, like best place to eat on a budget, something most tourists miss?

Thanks in advance!

For BFI, there's a great little park at the north end of the runway: ... 9842,19.1z
There's no train stop nearby but the general area is served by a few buses.

I think spotting near SEA is sorta meh, but the top of the parking garage is ok. Easily accessible via train.
