Downtown, Seattle, Washington
Do: Visit Pike Place Market Pike Place Market is another Seattle staple, first opened in 1907. Overlooking Elliot Bay, it features tons of stalls, stands, and shops filled with fresh produce, local seafood, antiques, and crafts. It's a bustling spot that offers a nice peak into everyday Seattle life. Stay: Four Seasons Hotel Seattle It's hard to go wrong with this top luxury hotel that has, arguably, some of the best views in the city, not to mention a restaurant with an acclaimed Seattle chef, a rooftop infinity pool, and 147 spacious, classically comfortable rooms. The business-y surroundings might preclude the opulence of other, larger Four Seasons properties, but what you lose in neighborhood ambiance you gain in vistas and proximity to the best Seattle attractions. Plus, the Pike Place Market is just a five-minute walk away.
