It was a really interesting tour, and although the price is a little steep ($15/person), I’d definitely recommend it. Next we checked out the Seattle Library, which we were told (by a lot of people) was a must-see. It was incredible! Definitely the most amazing library I've ever seen...

Of course, we couldn't leave Pike Place without seeing the original Starbucks! Kevin got a Pike Place Roast, and we heard a little bit about the history of this location. They are the only 'chain' that's allowed in the market, since they got in there at the beginning. BUT because they are a historical landmark, they are not allowed to make any upgrades to their building. This means that they don't serve food, and they brew their coffee in the original barista machines.
We got off at the island, and spend the afternoon strolling the small-town shops, enjoying the Pegasus coffee shop, and grabbing dinner at the Harbour Public House (mmm, fish and clams and mussels!) This is a definite recommendation for anyone coming to Seattle; Bainbridge Island is a whole other part of the culture here, and the 30 minute ferry ride is so nice!
