On the Waterfront, Seattle:
This city is famously ped-friendly, and downtown is beautifully easy to get around on foot. Whichever direction you go in, make sure to stop by Pike Place Market
(we know it's not new, but we never get tired of those flying fish) and have a wander through the diverse selection of stalls, crafts, and specialty foods that make it one of the city's tastiest places. From there, walk down a couple of blocks southwest to Waterfront Park
for a stroll along the boardwalks, where you can sometimes enjoy clear views of the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
