Things To Do Near Ferry Terminal in Seattle

Whether you need to kill time waiting for a friend coming in from Bainbridge Island or just like hanging out by the docks feeding seagulls Ivar's french fries, there's plenty to do around Seattle's ferry terminal downtown. From arcades to antiques, the waterfront is about more than just ferries.

Stroll north up Alaskan Way and check out the Seattle Aquarium, which tops our list as one of the biggest, coolest attractions near the ferry terminal. On your way, drop inside the Waterfront Arcade for a quick game of Ms. Pacman, the Antique Market for a new teacup set or Ye Olde Curiosity Shop to peek at a few shrunken heads and other oddities.

Giant octopus and otters aren't your thing? How about scorpions and spiders? Seattle Bug Safari is a real live bug zoo, great for kids and adults alike who love things that crawl. And while you're headed up that way, check out Pike Place Market. If you aren't hungry yet, you will be when you get there – with juice stands, cafes, bakeries and cheese shops, it's hard not to get the munchies. Grab a hot piroshky, a vegan blueberry scone or a few dumplings to snack on during your ferry ride.

Just south of the ferry terminal is Qwest Field, home of the NFL's Seahawks and venue for a variety of exhibits year-round. And historical Pioneer Square is a great neighborhood to visit, not least because it's where The Underground Tour lures visitors down into an 1800s version of Seattle.
