  • The Wall Street Journal

    The seafood's really good, there's a lot of local artists, a lot of beautiful jewelry. The most encompassing Seattle way to spend an afternoon.

    Pike Place Market is home to the first Starbucks, Rachel the Pig, numerous street performers and entertainers, and the Pike Place Fish Market, which features the fish-throwing fishmongers.

    Meet Rachel, a 700-pound swine statue that sits among the crowds in this market. Rest assured, any coins you donate to the piggy bank go to local non-profits.
