Seattle, Washington: Pike Place Market
Pick up a tourist brochure of Seattle, and you are bound to see this sign. It's for the Pike Place Market, which has enjoyed a rebirth over the last couple of decades. The market actually dates back to 1907, and was briefly headed for demolition before it was preserved. Now it's thriving. It has an assorted of shops and restaurants, and people flock to see the fish salesmen display the day's catches. It's always great to see big crowds downtown on a Sunday.
