There are parks aplenty in Seattle alone, like Alki Beach, Gas Works Park, and Lake Washington, and that’s before you consider the more intrepid outdoor destinations like Mt. Rainier. Here, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for true Seattle activities like hiking, biking, and getting out on the water--just be sure to bring a rain jacket.
Seattle may be the capital of rainy days and Evergreen trees. But that doesn’t mean you won’t find a lot to love about spring in Seattle. From cherry blossoms to soccer games to picnics on the waterfront, you’re sure to find a surprise around every corner.
Seattle is a dynamic destination all its own. Yet no summer vacation itinerary would be complete without Seattle ferry day trips. The ferry network sets Seattle apart from other cities.
Seattleites know that in the Pacific Northwest you have to get outside while you can. And while it’s true you can undertake most of these activities year round with a rain jacket, it’s all the more enjoyable when the sun is high in the sky.
Nothing says summer like farmers markets, especially in a city like Seattle. Though many of these markets are open year round, there’s something special about perusing the many colorful stalls while the sun hangs high in the sky.
We’ve all seen pictures of the Space Needle and the Pike Place Market sign. We know all about glistening Elliott Bay, the Seattle Art Museum, and the intricate Olympic Sculpture Park, as well as the lush green trees that have earned Seattle its “Emerald City” moniker.
