Great place full of beautiful buildings. I found this hidden treasure for my husband and enjoyed it as much. There is a lot to see, the streets are gorgeous, The square is spectacular. They have good stores there. Well worth a visit if you are at all in to the City History.

Dingy and lots of homeless people around, although they were harmless and didn't bother us. We went on a Sunday morning - the place was quite deserted - many art galleries/shops shut. The only interesting thing in the area was Bill Spiedel's Underground Tour, which makes it worth going out to Pioneer Square.

The underground tour of Pioneer Square is a fascinating part of Seattles history. You would not believe what lies below the 'current' sidewalk. A great tour and and fantastic family friendly tour.

I walked around to soak the atmosphere but really there was nothing much about the area. I had thought it might be more interesting and more of a vibe but it was pretty dead. Some nice shops though,

This is a nice place to walk around and shop and look. Although the homeless situation is very apparent in the area.

Though it has been many years since I was there last, we had a wonderful time. I would like to return and spend some more time in Seattle.

Definitely the home of my favorite vintage shops in Seattle and some supremely-mediocre restaurants. Worth a wander if you're around.

It can be dicey walking around PS at night unless you're with a group of folks. BUT GO THERE FOR ALL THE LITTLE ART GALLERIES!!! A must for any creative to hang out around here. Great little food places too. History buffs, photographers, film folk, and artists. There are some hidden gems too. Martyr Sauce is a great little gallery... More

This charming part of historic Seattle still retains much of its old-fashioned feel. Yes, there are many homeless people that roam the area, but they don't bother you at all. If you want to explore Pier 52 (to take the ferry from the Seattle Terminal to Bainbridge Island), the waterfront, or even Pike Place, Pioneer Square is a great starting... More
