5 Pioneer Square The historic Pioneer Square area is where Seattle got its start back in the 1850s. Today it is the city’s only real historic district, and its tree-shaded streets are lined with brick buildings constructed after the Seattle fire of 1889. See “Walking Tour 2: The Pioneer Square Area,” in chapter 8, for a recommended route to explore this area. 8 ZEITGEIST ART/COFFEE With its big windows and local artwork, Zeitgeist Art/Coffee is popular with the Pioneer Square art crowd. A hip, low-key character makes this a pleasant place to kick back and get off your feet for a few minutes.

MEDICAL INSURANCE Although it’s not required of travelers, health insurance is highly recommended. Most health insurance policies cover you if you get sick away from home—but verify that you’re covered before you depart, particularly if you’re insured by an HMO. International visitors should note that unlike many European countries, the United States does not usually offer free or low-cost medical care to its citizens or visitors. Doctors and hospitals are expensive, and in most cases will require advance payment or proof of coverage before they render their services.

Zero for tacky tourist shops, fish-and-chips counters, and mediocre, overpriced restaurants. However, the waterfront does have its redeeming features: On a clear day, the view across Elliott Bay to the Olympic Mountains is unforgettable. And a wide sidewalk along the waterfront is perfect for strolling. Head up to the north end of the waterfront and you’ll find a pleasant waterside park away from the tourists. The real stars of the waterfront, though, are the Seattle Aquarium and the new Olympic Sculpture Park.
