“Once you’re back from your ferry ride, you can make your way to Pioneer Square. This is the most historic area of Seattle, and many of the attractions here revolve around the city’s strange history. There are tons of cool things to see and explore in Pioneer Square, but since you’re short on time, we’ll just hit the highlights for now. • Take the Underground Tour: The Great Seattle Fire happened in 1889 and destroyed half the city. When the city was reconstructed, they built it two stories above the original foundation. The old structures of abandoned shops and buildings remain under the city, and you can explore them on a guided Underground Tour. • Visit an Art Gallery: Pioneer Square is home to 50 art galleries, which represent a variety of eras, art forms, and artists from Seattle and all over the world. Every first Thursday of the month, there’s an Art Walk that includes free parking and admission into the local Pioneer Square galleries. Many cities do some form of an art walk, but Seattle’s was the original and it continues to be a local favorite activity. • Grab a Drink at Seattle’s Oldest Pub: The Central Saloon is Seattle’s oldest pub, built in 1892, and is a historic institution in Pioneer Square and Seattle at large. During the Gold Rush, miners used to kick back here and drink after a long day of work. Today, the pub hosts tons of local live bands and musical artists, and is an important hub for the city’s music scene. ”
