The Pike Pine Corridor is a small neighborhood on the northern edge of Seattle’s downtown area, and it’s well worth a visit during your next stay. From its critically-acclaimed selection of restaurants, to some cultural landmarks and peaceful places to relax, there’s plenty to enjoy when spending an afternoon exploring Pike-Pine.

Eat Lunch At Lark

Take Pictures at the Jimi Hendrix Statue

One of the most iconic artists to ever come out of Seattle may well have also been the greatest guitar player to ever live. While you’re in Pike-Pine be sure to stop by the intersection of Broadway and Pine, where nearby there’s a bronze statue of Jimi Hendrix on his knees shredding a riff in the way he was so famous for doing on stage.

Relax at Cal Anderson Park

Right by the Hendrix Statue is Cal Anderson Park, which is a spacious green space where you can lay your head and get some sun on the right day. It’s a peaceful oasis in the Pike-Pine neighborhood with scenic attractions like the Cal Anderson Park Reflecting Pool, and the Lincoln Reservoir.

Peruse Harvard Market
