Seattle's shopping district spans several very walkable blocks of downtown. I have learned to bike or use public transit to keep an outing here pleasant and affordable when I need to look for something. On street parking is challenging to find, and the one way streets and traffic could make visitors trying to find places tense. Garage and lot parking can be expensive. On the weekends several parking garages offer shoppers discounts, and it's always nice to go to downtown events with friends who work there and can park in the company garage.
