The home of grunge, Starbucks, and tech-giants Microsoft and Amazon, Seattle has always been an achingly cool place to be. The legacy of Nirvana lives on in the city's vibrant music and arts scene, with something to impress even the most jaded of culture vultures. It's a great destination for nature lovers too, with epic hiking trails through evergreen forests and prime whale watching in Puget Sound. You'll be seeing that iconic, Space Needle skyline soon.

Best time to visit Seattle

Autumn is the best time to visit Seattle, as the summer crowds have left but the cold weather hasn't quite drawn in. Days are still fairly warm, and there are lots of exciting festivals to enjoy (such as September's Bumbershoot). Summer is a very popular time to visit Seattle, as it's the driest time in the city (which is famous for its rain).

Cheapest time to visit Seattle

You'll find lower hotel room rates in autumn and spring. March to May is a cheap time to visit Seattle, but do be prepared for chilly weather and freezing wind off the Pacific. Before booking your hotel, double check that there aren't any conventions or festivals taking place during your trip dates. This can push hotel prices up.

Seattle is really a charming city. It's surrounded by great outdoors like Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker, short getaway to Whidbey is just one ferry ride away, and the diversity of the city provides amazing cuisine!

Seattle is the place to be for anyone who loves the arts, music, and adventure! So many different vibes makes it the city for anyone! Waterfront views mixed with city views is beyond beautiful. Pike Place Market gives you a little taste of a bunch of local food that is to die for! Love this city.

Everyone’s first thought of Seattle is rain. Their first question is “ doesn’t rain a lot up there?” Followed by their opinion “ it rains too much in Seattle for me.” Yes it rains and for months during winter. May or May not snow. Summer is best time of year (unless you’re a winter person) to enjoy all of Seattle’s natural beauty. Lakes, Bays, Island, beaches, Forest and Mountain tops. Nightlife is very diverse, entertainment for all. Hungry, well your in the right city. LOOK UP! I bet there’s food in eye sight. What can I say. I love the place.
