Want to be a sightseer in your own town? Or coming to visit Seattle?  Here’s where you can go play and sightsee at 10 top spots around Seattle (and slightly beyond).

Most are old favorites, from Pike Place Market to the Ballard Locks.  Still,  I bet lots of us haven’t been to all 10, even if we’ve lived in Seattle for a long time.

Got some different, more off-beat favorites?  Add them in the comments and I’ll make another list.
