Seattle Travel Guide

Why Visit Seattle

Tech wonks, indie musicians, and outdoorsy types happily coexist in Seattle, with its backdrop of snowy mountains and salty Puget Sound. That’s reason enough to visit Seattle. Crackling with energy, the city has birthed companies (Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon) that have fundamentally impacted our daily lives.

When to Visit Seattle

Seattle's music, arts, and food scenes thrive year-round; gray winter skies bring lower hotel prices and fewer crowds. Plan your Seattle travel early if you want to attend the International Film Festival in May or Bumbershoot in September. For the most reliable sunshine and warmth, visit Seattle from mid-June through August.

Seattle Weather

Yes, it rains in Seattle, about 150 days a year. But it drizzles more than pours, and often only intermittently. (Miami gets nearly twice as much annual rain.) Dreary days are most common from November to April, but temps rarely dip below freezing. And when the sun comes out after the rain, the city seems to sparkle.
