Downtown - Central Seattle - Not For Tourists Guide to Seattle (2016)

Not For Tourists Guide to Seattle (2016)

Central Seattle



Map 3

Like most downtowns, Seattle's mainly caters to tourists, consumers, and the work-a-day crowd. Therefore department stores, happy hours, and Starbucks are plentiful. But fancy condos are starting to spring up on every block, and more people are calling this 'hood home. You can get your culture on at Benaroya Hall or the Seattle Art Museum. Westlake Center is flavor country in terms of colorful characters, religious zealots, and the occasional "Personality Test" booth.

Part art gallery, part coffee joint.
