I just read the post about the 5-hour lunch layover. I'm actually traveling in the opposite direction (Hawaii -> Boston) with my family (including two young children and MIL), and would like suggestions for Friday dinner during our Seattle layover.
I would love, for example, to go to Pike Place Market, but are all the vendors gone by 6 pm? If so, what other areas would be interesting to walk around? Finally, how much is a cab ride to downtown Seattle - would it be worth renting a car?
