Unlike many other tourist attractions, Pike Place Market is absolutely a locals’ favorite as well — it’s the place downtown to get fresh seafood, beautiful bouquets of flowers, farm-fresh produce, and handmade goods. It’s really the heart and soul of the city, and at the Alexis, you’ll be within an easy stroll down 1st Avenue to the entrance. You could spend a day just wandering and not run out of things to see, but don’t miss these spots:

  • Pike Place Fish Market, known for its seafood tossing
  • Rachel the Pig, a 550-pound bronze piggy bank who’s quite photogenic
  • The original Starbucks, which sports the old-school logo
  • The Gum Wall, a sticky situation outside of Market Theater
  • Metsker Maps, one of the largest map stores in the U.S.
  • Rachel’s Ginger Beer, with original and rotating seasonal flavors
  • Piroshky Piroshky, offering sweet and savory Russian pastries that smell divine
