Seattle's Pioneer Square: old and new fun for families

Historic Pioneer Square, settled in 1852, is Seattle’s first neighborhood. What was once mucky tidelands is now filled with trendy art galleries, bars and restaurants in elegant brick and stone buildings from the turn of the century. There’s plenty of fun here for families, both visitors and locals.

Come try out the new climbing gym in Occidental Square (opened late last year) and other oldie-but-goodies: measuring your weight in gold, visiting antique fire trucks, exploring subterranean streets and — our favorite activity — snacking.

And, with Marshawn Lynch's return to Seattle, what better time could there be to support the Seahawks by gobbling up free Skittles from Marshawn's Beast Mode store?

Use the arrows above the image to find all the fun Pioneer Square has to offer.
