How to Spend a Rainy Day in Seattle

No reviews, be the first!

Anyone who’s lived in Seattle or visited before will know that a rainy day in the city is not that uncommon; over 200 days of the year are cloudy, and when taking into consideration the number of precipitation days, it’s one of the rainiest cities in the country. However, the rainfall itself isn’t at all record-breaking, and a ‘rainy day’ usually just means drizzle.

It also gets the least amount of sunlight in the continental U.S., which made it a prime setting for The Twilight Saga (after all, vampires can’t be out in the sun, can they?). That said, none of this makes Seattle any less fun to visit; the surrounding areas get much more rain than the city itself, and the moody weather complements all the cultural idiosyncrasies for which Seattle has become known.
