You can see the gilt-tipped dome of First Covenant Church from miles around, giving the Pike-Pine area a slightly Byzantine look. Since this is Capitol Hill, the church is less an authoritarian institution and more a venue that happily blends the sacred and the secular. The circular central space under the dome is often used for concerts, while the basement hosts all manner of events from parties to irreverent theater.
Since 2012, Seattle Free Walking Tours have been conducting tours and educating visitors about the city, at no charge at all. Guests can choose from two packages: Experience Seattle and Market Market. Experience Seattle is the best way to learn about the city's monuments, best eateries, shopping spots and attractions. Explore the historical Pike Place Market, its hidden nooks and the changes it has undergone through the years with their Market Market Tour. They also organize private tours, where packages will be designed according to your convenience. Though tours are entirely free, a contribution is greatly appreciated since this is what the guides do for a living. The tours last for around three hours, so put on your best walking shoes, don a hat and take your strides!
