Downtown is the heart of Seattle and home to many of the city’s must-see attractions. Set against the Puget Sound overlooking Elliot Bay, downtown boasts many businesses, offices, shopping retailers, and high-rise buildings. It is also the transportation center of the city with several Link light rail stations, bus terminals, and the WSDOT ferry terminal Seattleites are known to utilize for both work and play. The central location and thriving nightlife in the area make it a wonderful place to live and experience the best of city living.
Pike Place Market, a vibrant and bustling century-old market is the main tourist draw downtown, offering fresh produce, local food and baked treats, and all sorts of goods and products for both locals and tourists alike. When you’ve had your fill at the market, head down to the waterfront Great Wheel or Seattle Aquarium, or meander through the Seattle Art Museum. Cultural landmarks like the Gum Wall in Post Alley and Olympic Sculpture Park along the waters edge are also a must-see. In Downtown Seattle, there is something for everyone.
