Queen Anne, Seattle: Gourmet Coffee Shops and Art Galleries Close to Downtown
Street performers often provide musical accompaniment as shoppers walk beneath the iconic Public Market Center sign at the open-air Pike Place Market, located a few minutes northwest of the hotel. One of the most renowned attractions in Seattle, the marketplace bustles with locals and out-of-towners browsing an array of stalls vending fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, flowers, and meat. Before the proliferation of Starbucks on every corner, Seattleites grabbed a cup of java at the company's original coffeehouse, which first opened here in 1971.
Local gourmet coffee shops can be found in other inviting neighborhoods, too. Belltown, located about a half mile north of downtown, is an arts district filled with cafés, shops, and galleries galore. One such gallery, Roq La Rue, showcases rotating exhibits with an emphasis on pop surrealism and underground contemporary art.
From the vantage point of Kerry Park, there's a terrific view of Elliott Bay and the Seattle skyline, with the Space Needle standing prominently in the foreground. On clear days, you can search for rock carvings of the Frasier cast on the face of Mount Rainier in the distance.
