Three Days of Things to Do, Eat and See in Seattle

19 Things to do in Seattle this Fall

Maximize your time in Seattle with this three day itinerary of things to do, eat and see.

Day 1

Breakfast – Sound View Café

For over 40 years, the Sound View Café has been tucked just west of the Pike Place Market’s fish-flinging crew. While the space here may be narrow, the view is anything but. Elliot Bay and the Olympics spill out in front of you at this long time favorite. Service is sometimes slow, but the prices are incredibly reasonable, the seafood is fresh and the coffee is packed with caffeine.

Sound View Café – 1501 Pike Pl #501, Seattle

 

Explore – Pike Place Market
Wander through Seattle’s Pike Place Market where fresh flowers, flying seafood and the occasional street performer fill the cobblestone streets. Make sure to visit Rachel, the Market’s pig mascot. Pop down to Post Alley where the Market Theater’s wall, better known as the Gum Wall, is covered with sticky color. Head further south to the Harbor Steps, a pedestrian walkway connecting 1st Avenue, Post Alley and Western Avenue. Looking for a caffeine refill? Head up to Café Fonté on 1st Avenue where the beans are expertly roasted and the coffee is exceptionally prepared.

Café Fonté – 1321 First Ave., Seattle (more…)

Today, they remain hands-on with the planes – Sam from inside the cockpit and Jason from inside the machine shop.  (more…)
