    Make sure you visit the WWII exhibits where the W.A.S.P. show us what they did for the war efforts! Many are not aware of these women.

    If you are in town this is a must see attraction. Plus if you are in planes reserve more than 4 hours for this its packed with "toys" and loaded with information (boeing history, WWII, NASA etc)

    This has the original Boeing workshop. There's a large area with planes ranging from their first mail planes through to jets. Around the corner is another hanger with aircraft from the two World Wars.

    To travel from the Airport, take the train to Tukwilla Station and then bus 124. From Seattle downton take bus 24 which then becomes 124 when leaves the city. To travel back to the city, take the 124.

    Don't go to the express line if you have a city pass. We could've gone through the regular line twice in the time it took us to get our tickets. Might have just be a bad day or the person there.
