I am a city lover and was surprised that it took me so long to get to Seattle. The most disappointing thing about it was that I only had one day there! I would love to have spent more time exploring.
Of the 3 things I was able to do while visiting I would recommend all 3:
The Boeing Tour outside the city was my favorite and even if you only have a minimal interest in aviation I would recommend going.
Take the quick ride to the top of the Seattle landmark, Space Needle, for a good view of downtown Seattle, the surrounding water and islands.
Take a walk around, maybe grab something to eat at Pike Place Market.
