Bell Harbor will be on your left. For additional walking routes, please use the map to the right.

*The Pike Street Hill Climb is the nickname for a popular staircase behind the Pike Place Market, and the stairs will take you to the waterfront and Alaskan Way. Signs in the Market will direct you there.

Parking at Bell Harbor

We recommend parking in the Art Institute of Seattle’s parking garage, which connects directly to Bell Harbor and World Trade Center Seattle via the skybridge and can be accessed on both Elliott Avenue and Wall Street.

The rates at that garage are absurd so make sure you buy a discounted parking ticket at the registration desk. You can park all day for only $10, IF YOU BUY YOUR PARKING TICKET AT THE REGISTRATION DESK INSIDE THE EVENT.
