I always enjoy taking a stroll through Pike Place, but I don't enjoy the crowds. Thus the 4 stars. I definitely recommend going early, so you're not dodging people left and right. Probably the most touristy part of the city besides the Space Needle. Buy some flowers before you leave. They're stunning and CHEAP. You'll thank me later. Take an offshoot and check out the gum wall if you haven't yet. It's weird and fun and gross and I can't help but love it.

Ridiculously crowded that I could only manage the tea spice shop, a fish sandwich restaurant and a artisan jewelry stand.

Beautiful way to get some easy exercise and get to know Seattle, and we saw bald eagles!

Love coming here each time I visit Seattle. Easy to walk around and navigate and take in both the views and the market.

Fun market experience, be sure to also visit the gum wall near the Market Theater area

A little crowded for running in the beginning of the trail but certainly entertaining. It gets less crowded the further North you go and the views are amazing on a clear day. Be sure to take time out of your walk/run to climb the stairs up Pier 66 to take in the view. On a clear day you can see Mt. Rainier to the South behind the Seattle skyline and the Olympic Mountains to the West across the Puget Sound. I did this during my lunch at work so I had to turn back early but wish I had enough time to see the whole thing.

This is a no brainer if you are visiting Seattle. It is so much fun to walk around and look at all the local souvenirs, fresh seafood, and fruits. Meanwhile you have local musicians playing for you. It is so much fun.

Interesting walk through the food and craft Mecca of Seattle

I love this place. I've been in, outside, on, underneath, and throughout this great place. Please bring a pack with your 10 essentials for this one. Trekking poles optional!!!

8/28/2018 (Tuesday) -- Sunny afternoon, 1 hour leisure walk from NW to SE, 2 miles. The paths through the Sculpture Park is free. The trails are designed separately for bikers and walkers. The best place in Seattle downtown to walk along the shoreline of the Puget Sound. It is officially called "Elliott Bay Trail". The northern section from "Fish On" is closed.

I have to say, I think it's hilarious that this is mentioned as a 'trail'. HAHAHAHA! It is always fun to walk around Pike Place. Fish throwing etc. Classic.

Ok walk along Pikes place market. I’ve walked here several times for shopping and to take my out-of-state friends sight seeing. I give this four stars because this would be a very nice walk for a tourist but it is nothing special for someone who is local.

Fresh produce and people watching.

Stenuous hike filled with switchbacks. Lots of E gain and losses. Will definitely need an ice axe and crampons in the spring and winter. Great inlets with fresh fish.

I sometimes go before work. I grab a coffee, maybe snatch up one of the first Proskey Proskey as they open and watch the market stir to life.

Love the array of things you see and smell on this walk. It was very busy on a Sunday mid morning but it was nice!

Pikes Place is a lot of fun to check out. Lots of little shops and tons of very fresh Seafood. The very first Starbucks is located on this route and a ton of yummy pastry and ice cream shops. This place is alive with sights and smells, arts and crafts and really neat to explore

Great views. The mountains across the water look beautiful. You can watch the ferries and boats coming in and out of the docks. Great seafood restaurants.

One of the most famous marketplaces in the country. Lots of interesting stands with a lot to offer. Food, art, t shirts and souvenirs, jewelry.

I've made only one trip to Seattle and Pike Place Market was a must see for me. The amount of fresh seafood and beautiful produce was staggering....if I lived in Seattle I'd be here several times a week!!

We live right by Olympic Sculpture Park, and are lucky enough to walk on this trail most days! It is absolutely stunning and well-maintained. Make sure to stop and enjoy the scenery every so-often, or you’ll miss the views (or an orca, or a sea lion).

I walked this the first time in 2008 from King St station through Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market, to the Space Needle and over to Centennial Park and back. I came back 4 years later to do it again
