If you don't go to Pike Place Market while you're in Seattle, then you really haven't been to Seattle.
I like to go in the morning, when vendors are setting up and breakfast is being served. By the time I'm done eating breakfast, the vendors have their wares out and I'm ready to shop and eat my way through the market.
Stop by the original Starbucks, but be prepared to wait as it's a popular place. Get a mug or gift card there, because they have styles that are available only at that store.
Catch a performance by a street performer. Watch out for flying fish.
