Seattle - Downton, Pike Place & Waterfront (Chapter)
This is the Downtown, Pike Place & Waterfront chapter from Lonely Planet's Seattle guidebook.
Downtown is a standard American amalgam of boxy skyscrapers and brand-name shopping opportunities that's given welcome oomph by Pike Place Market, the city's number-one must-see. The waterfront is undergoing a slow regeneration.
- see, smell and taste the unique energy of Pike Place Market, from the charismatic fish throwers to the creative – but disgusting – gum wall
- see how nine suspended cars can be made into spectacular modern art at Seattle Art Museum
- ride on the Bainbridge Island ferry just for the hell of it (and admiring the amazing views)
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighborhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Neighborhood Walk, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
