With historic buildings, art galleries galore, and great daytime eats, Pioneer Square has plenty to offer as a home base for visitors. The neighborhood, a 15-minute walk from Pike Place Market and close to mass transit, is built atop the rubble of the Great Seattle Fire of 1899, which decimated the wooden structures of original Seattle. Don't miss the famous Underground Tour, which takes visitors through what's left of the original city while offering up amusing commentary about the often gritty olden days.
