3. PIKE PLACE MARKET
Seattle's largest public market is also one of its biggest attractions. Scores of vendors sell everything from local salmon to fresh-cut flowers, specialty foods, crafts, and much more. Don't forget to explore the dozens of shops on the lower level.
It Factor: The market recently completed a massive expansion. Its new wing, MarketFront, opened in summer 2017 and features space for a plethora of new vendors, additional parking, and low-income senior housing. Make a point to visit new businesses like Little Fish (house-cured, salted, and smoked seafood) and Old Stove Brewing Co. (brewhouse and gastropub).
