Aimless (DC) Tourist, Looking for Non-Tourist Spots

JoanArkham | Jan 4, 2011 11:04 AM

Does anyone ever say they *want* tacky tourist spots? Anyway, I'm finally taking my first trip to Seattle for a long weekend in 2 weeks. We have no particular plans, other than walking, eating, and drinking. I know (of course) about Seattle's reputation for coffee and beer, and the Pike Place Market, but I'm ashamed to say I don't know too much else. What should we be seeking out? (Mr. Arkham doesn't eat meat, but does eat fish and seafood.)

We're staying in the Alexis Hotel and not getting a car, but we generally use public transit when traveling. Cheap eats to mid-range places, nothing too fancy or formal. Thanks in advance!

Pike Place Market
1501 Pike Pl, Seattle, WA 98101
