If you’re headed up north for Seafair, our Facebook readers have good suggestions about where you might go to see the Blue Angels. Over on Twitter, some of my pals suggested Genesee Park on Lake Washington for family activities, or heading to the Museum of Flight, which will have family activities and a good view of the Blue Angels take offs and landings. Read more about Flight Museum activities here.
