Downtown Seattle is a fast paced hustling, bustling part of town. There is always so much to do and so much to see. A major well known spot to go is The Market.
Pike Place Market is open from 9am – 6pm Monday – Friday and 9am – 5pm on Sundays. Vendors line the halls of the market with booths full of beautiful crafts, delicious foods, naturally and locally made products, and of course the most fragrant and stunningly colorful flowers in Seattle. Immerse yourself in the lively area of the market where you can find orders of fish flying through the air and smell the wonderful scents of fresh donuts being made around the corner. The market is not only street level, but it also spans several stories with gift shops, restaurants, and stores throughout. Some of the most famous and popular eateries are the Maximilien Restaurant for the best French Onion Soup in town, and Lowell’s which is another well known place at the market. Lowell’s offers exceptional seafood and American eats, breakfast through dinner. It has been famously critiqued by New York magazines and famous celebrities for years.
Down the street you will find even more unique shops and centers and the famous first ever Starbucks in Seattle as well the coveted Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. Get a cup of coffee at Starbucks and a good munch on some mac n’ cheese from Beecher’s. Chow down and watch the crafts people make their cheese right there in front of you at the store.
Beyond The Market is Victor Steinbrueck Park which is a great inner city park to hang out and watch the ships and ferries pass through Puget Sound. Often the park is busy with tourists and just all people alike enjoying the beautiful and some how serene view among the bustling city.
Pike Place Market has a little bit for everyone, there are amazing restaurants, famous stops, incredible views; you just can’t go wrong spending a day at the market.
