Visited here a few times; Pike Place Market (claims to be the oldest farmer’s market in the country and the most interesting destination in Seattle) is at the Waterfront (1st Ave. and Pike St.); the stalls are deserted by 6PM so don't arrive late; it is 8 stories above the harbor on a bluff, with two ways to climb - via elevator hidden at base of the market or take the Harbor Stairs (good set of stairs with shops and gardens). Don’t miss Rachel the Pig (sit and take a picture!) - she marks the main entrance to the Main and North Arcades, which are full of fresh produce and shops. The South Arcade is the newest wing. Watch the "flying fish" at Pike Place Fish and watch out for the Monkfish. Down the street from Pike Place Fish is "the original" Starbucks - years ago this narrow space at 1912 Pike Place was the only Starbucks in the world. Be sure to notice how different the mermaid here looks compared to the official logo. Eat lunch at Etta's Seafood (prior to 3PM), park at the Pike Place Parking Garage at 1531 Western Ave. Enjoy the crowds, always something going on!
