Local Lifestyle

The local lifestyle of downtown Seattle is surprisingly peaceful.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Downtown Seattle has a seemingly endless number of places to visit and restaurants to explore within its few dense blocks. Start your journey at Pike Place Market, a renowned open-air market and one of the oldest Farmer's Markets in the state. The biggest attraction is the entertainment fish market, but you'll find a little bit of everything. For luxury shopping, head to the enormous Nordstrom, which is a shopping mall unto itself. Inside the massive multi-story Nordstrom are departments for men, women, children, households, and beyond complete with mini-shops for branded products.
 
If you're looking for fun in the sun and a trendy blend of local shops, head to the Seattle Waterfront, where the mix of ocean air and delectable restaurant aromas are as delightful as the views. For a little cultural enrichment, head to the Seattle Art Museum, where classical meets contemporary. Here you’ll find something for everyone.

Things to Do
