Tourists love Newmark Tower because most of Seattle’s best photo opps are close at hand. Here are some tips for having a great vacation in Seattle while getting all the essential pictures to fill your photo album and feed your socials:
Walk one block west along Pike Street and you’ll be right under the iconic red Pike Place Market sign (you’ll want to snap your pic while standing closer to 1st Street). Head straight into the market entrance to find Rachel the Piggy Bank, an outdoor brass sculpture that everyone in Seattle has adopted. Walk inside and you’ll find the world famous Pike Place Market fish throwers. And while they will happily pose for a pic with you, score extra points by buying some fresh fish and taking it home to grill later in your Newmark Tower luxury kitchen. After you stroll the rest of the shops, buying gifts, fresh flowers and vegetables along the way, step back outside. Just across the cobblestone street, you’ll find the World’s First Starbucks store. Have a snack or complete your evening meal with some fresh perogies from Piroshky Piroshky
After you head home to load up the refrigerator with your bounty, the Seattle Space Needle
(The Museum of Pop Culture, formerly the Experience Music Project / EMP), and Chihuly Garden and Glass
are a mile north. Simply walk up 2nd Avenue and take a right on Broad Street to get there.
For your next adventure and must have pictures, walk down University street or use the western Pike Place Market stairs to take a ride on the Great Wheel
, Seattle’s waterfront Ferris Wheel. Close to that, you’ll find a must-see stop for kids, the Seattle Aquarium
