How can you enjoy the sights in Seattle while avoiding the crowds?

For me part of sightseeing includes checking out the crowds and the local people and how they interact among themselves and visitors. Sightseeing is more than just looking at the prairies in Kansas or beautiful Black Hill of South Dakota, Yellowstone River running through Wyoming and Montana, or the forest and coastline in Oregon or even the Cactus Forest we saw in Arizona. It also about checking out the people in crowded streets of downtown Seattle, Vancouver, Victoria, and San Francisco or the people who or at the other table is restaurants in Newport, Oregon or San Diego California or the waiters and waitresses who served us in Oklahoma City, Seattle, Vancouver, Oakland and El Paso. There is a lot to see on the wonderful continent and my wife and I take try to take in all the sights; the natural environment, the man-made structures such as the Space Needle in Seattle, the monuments and museums and even the people.

Pike's Public Market is a wonderful shopping experience. Whether you're looking to buy the freshest seafood, fruit, vegetables or flowers, you will find it there! If you're shopping for souvenirs, that's the place. If you enjoy antiques or unique & interesting trinkets, you'll find them there too! The possibilities are endless!

There are some great local sushi places in Seattle. Many of them pride themselves on using unique and local ingredients. I'm a traditional sushi snob and there were a couple that really stand out as excellent.

Why do people say Seattle can be seen best by foot?

Getting around by car can be tough because of construction detours & lots of tourists! They do have a good transit system, but we preferred to walk more to appease our exploring side. It is possible to walk the majority of Seattle's sites in one day!

We were shocked at how many people actually stopped and asked us if there was anything that we needed help finding. We did have a map in our hands but there was always somebody there to help us, even young people ages 15-18. Service at the restaurants was awesome too.

Seattle's downtown area and the Queen Ann area of Seattle which is where we stayed are really neat area to visits. There's the Space Needle, Pike's Place Market, Olympic Park, Safeco Baseball Park and so many other things to check out in Seattle. It is great place to visit.

Sorry my stay of 4 days was too short to recommend food outlets. I had a bad experience at a Cafe called "Biscuit Bitch". So called biscuit was overpowered with soda and tasted bitter! Unfortunately it was recommended by Mayflower Park Hotel's Concierge!

The underground walking tours are amazing for learning about the history of Seattle! We took the Beneath the Streets tour, & our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Seattle history with his 15 years of experience. We also took the Spooked in Seattle walking tour where we learned about the paranormal side of Seattle!
