Where can I park an RV in or close to Pike Place Market?
Our parking garage and parking lots cannot accommodate RVs. However, there is RV parking available on surface lots directly across from the Seattle Aquarium on the east side of the 1500 block of Alaskan Way. This is within easy walking distance of the Market.
Where can I drop-off a school or tour bus?

Two drop-off spaces are located just behind and west of the Market in the 1600 block of Western Avenue. Busses can also park on the Seattle waterfront on Alaskan Way at piers 62/63. Both of these locations have signage indicating bus parking.
