Top 3 places to see
Pike Place Market
This place is probably packed with tourists because it the largest tourist area found downtown. The place is an attraction because this is the oldest farmers market in the nation. It is also known for the original Starbucks coffee shop, and the famous fish market.
Seattle Art Museum
The museum displays art from all over the world. The museum hosts African art, porcelains, European avant-garde paintings, glass pieces and more.

If you love music and architecture, this is the perfect place to be at. This piece of art looks like Jimi Hendrix’ smashed guitar. Only Frank Gehry can conceive something like this.
