Pioneer Square, Seattle

(1.7/5 based on 460 reviews on the web)
Explore the historic heart of Seattle, admire the architecture, and experience the art scene and nightlife at Pioneer Square. The neighborhood is located on the spot where the city's founders settled more than 150 years ago. The majority of the area's buildings originated during the late 19th century. Today they house a selection of art galleries, restaurants, bars, shops, and clubs. You can also visit several museums that tell the story of the area's history. Underground tours and ghost tours let you see the neighborhood from a different perspective. Book a Segway tour for something totally different.
