Finding deals for Seattle tourist attractions

There are a ton of Seattle tourist attractions that you'll want to visit while you're on your trip to the Pacific Northwest.

Whether it's visiting the Seattle Science Center or the Seattle Space Needle, there are a number places you visit that you and your kids will be sure to love.

The problem with visiting all these places, however, is that the cost can quickly get out of control. Spending full price on these attractions, and then taking everyone out to eat can empty your wallet pretty fast.

The trick, then, is finding the best deals and ways to save money when visiting these Seattle tourist attractions.

Check the web
If you have time, it's a good idea to make a rough outline or list of the Seattle tourist attractions you want to visit. Once you have that list, take a look at the official websites of those attractions because a lot of times there will be special deals that are offered only through those pages. Also, some attractions offer deals when you visit during off-peak times (usually between October and April).

Bring your ID
One great way to save money is to make sure that your kids bring their student IDs. A lot of places offer discounts to seniors and students (as well as young children), so there's a great incentive to bring proper ID. If you're a member of the military, let the attraction know. There's a good chance you'll receive a discount.
