The Pike Market became a tourist attraction. But you can find fresh produce, great cheese and pastries and even an Asian Market.
Seattle is the home base of the first Starbucks, and companies like Microsoft and Amazon are base there.
Below the Market you can find the Wall of Gum. Is terrifying, specially when you see all the bees grabbing sugar from the gum instead of the flowers.
Seattle’s nickname is Emerald City. It has a bast green landscape, it rains very often! and long time ago, the Indian tribes owned the land, even the city is name after the Indian Chief who used to rule the land , “Chief Seattle”.
There are several original statues of Liberty, one is in Paris, other one is in New York and Seattle also has one!
The football team of Seattle are the Seahawks. They won the last Super Bowl.
There is a culinary school!
And I took the Underground Tour. The explained me the history of the city. How once it flooded and they rebuild the city on top of the old houses, giving birth to spaced proper for Speak Easies, and bringing to the city a lot of Prostitution. Back in the day the “proper” women were diagnose with “Histeria”, they were cure with vibrators, and the men, to satisfy their needs, they will search for prostitutes.
There city is beautiful! the buildings and attractions are very characteristic of the city! The needle building is an emblematic one!
