Seattle walking tour: Pioneer Square

The compact Pioneer Square area is where Seattle began to flourish in the late 1800s; it’s rich in history and has some of Seattle’s oldest buildings. This walk can easily be combined with the Chinatown International District walk. Take a somewhat “U” shaped route from the International District/Chinatown transit station on Fifth Avenue South to the Pioneer Square transit station on Third Avenue. The route follows South Jackson Street, First Avenue South, Yesler Way, Second Avenue and Cherry Street.

Fall's a prime time to revisit sights you haven't seen for a while — or to show them off to out-of-towners. Find more walking tours here.
