Seattle - Pioneer Square & International District (PDF Chapter)
This is the Pioneer Square, International District & SoDo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Seattle guidebook.
Browsing the Pioneer Square Historic District is rather like visiting a movie set of early 20th-century Seattle, except that the food and the shopping are better. ID is Seattle’s de-facto Chinatown and SoDo has bars, pot shops and a whiskey distillery.
- relive the spirit of the gold rush at the inspiring Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, set in one of the many redbrick Richardsonian Romanesque buildings that sprang up after the 1889 Great Fire
- plugging into the spirit of the times and enjoying a damn fine cup of coffee at Zeitgeist Coffee
- satisfy lunchtime Asian food cravings at Jade Garden, a boisterous dim-sum restaurant in the International District
- restaurants & bars
