Everyone who comes to Seattle knows about the famous Pike Place Market. The open air portion of the market is dog-friendly so visitors with dogs often stop there.
If you are like me, you like to get off the beaten path. I often visit places and wish I knew about the less-visited gems that the locals know about.
I am going to share one of those Seattle places with you. You can even walk there with your dog from the Pike Place Market.
If you walk down the Pike Place Market stairs to the waterfront, and walk north along the sidewalk, you will find yourself at a “dead end”. This dead end is the start of Myrtle Edwards Park. This park features a 1.25-mile winding bike and pedestrian path (one way) along Elliott Bay with fantastic views of the Olympics Mountains, Mount Rainier, and Puget Sound.
Inside the park you will also find The Seattle Post-Intelligencer globe, one of the most endangered historic landmarks in Washington.
After you enjoy the park and globe, you can head south for about a half mile along the waterfront and grab a bite to eat with your pooch at the dog-friendly Anthony’s Fish Bar (outside seating only) and then walk back to your car at the Pike Place Market.
