Seeing the Most in Central Seattle
The best way to explore Downtown Seattle is on foot. The hilly streets with their surprising views of Elliott Bay make for entertaining strolls. We like the First Hill neighborhood’s shops and cafes - it has a youthful vibe. You can find a multitude of small cafes in and near Pike Place Market, including the original Starbuck’s location.
And speaking of what Seattle is famous for there is: coffee (Starbucks), aerospace (Boeing) and technology (Microsoft).
The Arts in Seattle
The Seattle Art Museum also has a location downtown featuring contemporary and Pacific indigenous peoples’ works, which are almost interchangeable in their similarities. The Seattle Asian Museum is located in pretty Volunteer Park, is worth a visit for its historical and contemporary Asian art exhibits. And to see pop culture there is the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture! located next to the famous city's iconic Space Needle.
Important Places to See in Seattle:
In Volunteer Park see Isamu Noguchi's iconic Black Sun sculpture. The fantastic angular glass structure of the Seattle Public Library - designed by Rem Koolhaas.
Take a walk around historic Pioneer Square where Seattle was first settled in 1851, and which developed in a commercial hub in 1897, during the Klondike Gold Rush.
Food and Wine: Ferries can take you to Bainbridge Island for visits to wineries. It’s also a great way to get out on windy Elliott Bay. Pike Place Market is great for quick bites and fresh seafood.
