Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market

  • 85 Pike Street
  • Between Pike and Pine sts. at First Ave
  • tel:206/682-7453
  • Visit website
  • Seattle, 98121

Nine acres of fresh produce, seafood, coffee, donuts, crafts, unique restaurants and friendly vendors, all set against a backdrop of the Puget Sound – that's Pike Place Market, widely recognized as one of the oldest and best farmer's markets in the country. If you only have one day in Seattle, head downtown to get a real taste of the city in every sense. From fresh cheese curds at Beecher's to chowder at Pike Place Chowder, from necklaces and bags to hand-stitched leather journals and hats, from accordions to pianos to hula-hooping guitarists – there's something for your eyes, ears, and nose everywhere you look at the market.

The Space Needle

The Space Needle

  • Seattle Center

  • Visit website
  • Seattle, 98121

Built for the 1962 World's Fair, this 605-foot towering structure may also rate as one of the nation's most recognized structures...and one of its most overrated tourist traps.  The $22 adult day-and-night ticket is about as steep as the Needle itself, and one's wait in line will often exceed the time spent at the top.  The views are free and just as impressive atop the Columbia Tower nearby on Fifth Avenue.

Seattle Waterfront

Seattle Waterfront

  • Alaskan Way
  • From South Main Street to Denny Way
  • tel:+1 206 223 1767
  • Visit website
  • Seattle, 98101

The Waterfront offers a traditional, feel-good boardwalk experience that's almost a step back in time. The ferry terminal, as well as smaller cruise and water taxi services, can be found here, along with fish n chips, chowder, and of course, coffee galore. For those looking for a no-cost afternoon out, there are plenty of quiet spots to sit and stare at the water and the mountains.
