Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington
Concierge.com's insider take:
This bustling, labyrinthine bazaar is a wonderful place to while away a few hours. More than 600 stalls and stores spread out over nine acres hawk fruits, vegetables, seafood, flowers, clothing, and more. Don't miss the vast assortment of handmade crafts toward the market's north end—the largest such collection in the Northwest—the famous fish-flingers at the south end, or the flower market. Other must-stops include Left Bank Books, Sur La Table, and Mercado Latino. In addition to shops and stalls, the market and its immediate area have some of the city's favorite dining and drinking spots.
