Seattle Center is walking distance, then you can catch the monorail or a quick cab down to Pike Place....it is walkable if you like to walk....

Well you are right next to the Space Needle and Seattle Center area, plus the EMP museum is right there, too. From there you could take the monorail to Westlake for some downtown shopping and then either walk about 5 blocks to Pike's Place Market, or hop on a bus (7, 12, 11, etc) that will take you down that way.

Also in Seattle Center, you can sign up for the Duck Land and Water Tour, which is a boat that drives all over Seattle and then gets in the water on Lake Union--really fun!

Btw, the bus downtown is free during the week 7 am- 7 pm. On weekends you can by an all day pass--I *think* that is $2, and then there are discounts for kids and elders, although I don't know what those rates are exactly.
