Boeing offers a tour of the plane factory. I went on it and it was awesome.http://www.futureofflight.org/
I also toured Digipen it was interesting if your into game programming.
The microsoft museum was pretty cool. Its worth it if your in the area, but I would not drive from downtown seattle just to go see it.
You might want to consider Jimi Hendrix memorial just outside of Renton.http://www.jimihendrixmemorial.com/
And Bruce Lees grave in Capitol Hill

Having done two contract jobs in the Boeing Everett factory, I can say that the tour is most likely worth it. Even working there every night for months it was still impressive. It's the largest single enclosed space in the world, capable of fitting 12 Empire State Buildings inside. It makes the 747s, 767s, 777s, and 787s assembled there look tiny, though not when they are being hauled over your head by cranes... then they look big again...
I was actually working there while they filmed these for NBC:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVPe5xq_UoMhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiZVKh0BmJE
I've also been to Bruce (and Brandon) Lee's grave, which I wouldn't recommend for a tour group. I actually cared about his philosophy (his interest in Jiddu Krishnamurti sparked my own) and his life's work, but I don't think you'd get much out of it if you're just the sort who thinks "he was a good kung fu actor" and nothing else. There's just not enough connection or meaning.

Honestly, we can use the bus system for most of the trip. The bus system is just as good if not better OUTSIDE of downtown Seattle. All it takes is a few printouts of bus schedules and pickup locations, once we know which places we will be visiting. Its also not all that expensive, relatively speaking of course.

Cool, we can use all the help we can get! =)
I didn't even notice the typo, my bad. =) I was thinking Pike's Place when I typed it, honest I was. ;) I'll go fix that.
EDIT: Ah, I can't find where I typed "Park's" instead of "Pike's". Where's it at?
