I'm a British guy visiting Seattle for my summer holiday, partly because of the chance to go to PAX, partly because this city sounded amazing (for anyone wondering, good news, totally is!). I'm staying with family in the Bellevue area, near Ardmore Park, and was wondering if any friendly (or at least non-hostile) locals would be willing to carpool to the convention. I'm quite willing to help out with petrol (gas) money for the journey.
Thanks for any and all replies,
P.S. Any suggestions for stuff to visit? I've already been shown around Pike Place, the Needle and Pioneer's Square, so I'm really happy so far.
Ye Olde Curiosity Shop
Museum of History & Industry
Pacific Science Center
Experience Music Project / Sci-Fi Museum
Woodland Park Zoo
The Underground Tour
Seattle Art Museum
The Museum of Flight
Chinatown / International District
More local stuff to do...
Some farther out:
Mt. St. Helens
Tacome Museum of Glass
The Puyallup Fair
Enjoy your stay.

There are still some spots open, and THIS is the way to see Seattle!
Another option is to take a bus into the city and back. I've done that a number of times when I didn't feel like driving.
EDIT: I see now that you said you're near Ardmore Park. That's just down the way from me. I'm just north of Microsoft. I'd be happy to give you a ride, but I don't know what my schedule is going to be at the moment. Ideally it'll be early to rise, late to bed.
I'll probably be able to drive at least 1 of the 3 days, other day, I might just drive to the park and ride and we'd take a bus.
as a general comment, it would be helpful to know which days you're going and how late you're staying (ie. I'm only staying for the saturday night concerts)
