Things to do in Seattle: Exploring an Iconic Landmark and a Local Hub

Posted in: , ,

If you are searching for photo opportunities, then the gum wall and Rachel The Pig are perhaps the best places to be in the beautiful city of Seattle. But if you desire to do something different, then Pike Place Market can be your destination. After Space Needle, this busy market attracts both residents and tourists. From restaurants to coffee shops to quirky shops, this market center has many surprises for you in and around it.

Restaurants, Museum, Library in 5-minute distance

There are two excellent restaurants only within five minutes of the distance from the market. One place serves delicious pasta for lunch. You get only three varieties to choose from apart from salads and side dishes. Then, there is a pizza spot where you can order from several in-house, seasonal options featuring mushrooms and potatoes. After a meal, you can visit the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) that houses a collection of Aboriginal Australian paintings and wood-block Japanese prints.

After this, you can go to the central branch of The Seattle Public Library. You will be attracted to its silver exteriors that shine differently as the light and day changes. From the top floor of the building, you can absorb the exciting downtown life. On your way down to the first floor, you can stop by a café for some relaxation.

Shop, eat and enjoy the last stop before winding up all within the distance of 10 minutes or more

From Pike Place Market, you can head to the Pioneer Square quickly. It is well-known for its boutiques, small businesses, and office buildings. From books to pens to Scandinavian style gold houseware to jewelry, you can shop for anything to your heart's content. If you enjoy wearing jewelry, then look for stackable rings and friendship bracelets for sure. Then, you can also find amazing choices in kitchenware, tea, flowers, and so on. 

After shopping, you can gorge in some of the most delicious doughnuts. You get only four flavors, but you cannot resist the creamy Italian options. When done, you can check the Seattle Great Wheel once. It is in the Pier 57 entertainment complex. From this structure, you can enjoy the full view of the city from a height.

When this one place has so many possibilities, imagine what you will get when you try to explore the entire length and breadth of this Emerald City. Not just the tourist attractions are unique here, but the opportunities to explore them are equally so. If you want to enjoy your day with family and friends in the best possible manner, then search for the different types of tours, such as Ride the Ducks of Seattle tours, that can get you there and other exciting places.

You can probably have one of the best touring experiences of life being in Seattle. And you don’t have to limit your options to weekends only. Some tour companies offer daily trips for their travelers. You can go through their schedules and plans for clarity. Also, make sure to know which places they cover and how.
