15 Things to do in Seattle &
Pike Street Market

Watching baseball is one of the fun things to do in Seattle while visiting so be sure to check the Seattle Mariners season schedule.

Doug's Seattle tourism art print: This view of the famous Pike Place Market Seattle Center (sometimes called Pike Street Market or just Public Market) in Seattle first started as a photograph taken by me on a visit in July 2008. My family was visiting a few days before leaving on an Alaska cruise. (see the "15 Things" list below)

Pike Place market Seattle

Pike Street Market, Seattle by Doug Dourgarian $120 USD

July in Seattle has beautiful sunny weather. The day I visited the Pike Street Public market was warm and everyone had a great time outdoors. The Pike Street Market district was unknown to me until I saw the Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks Sleepless movie about 10 years ago. The sign, which even locals call iconic, captured my imagination. Once on the scene, the smells, restaurants, and street singing swung me into a happy mood. This is a fun place and there are a lot of things to do in Seattle while visiting.
