Rainy day activities
Galleries and museums
There are a scattering of museums, including family-friendly sites, that are sure to keep you occupied for a few hours on a rainy day. Check out the Seattle Art Museum or the Museum of Flight.
As the home of Starbucks, you can bet the city has a wealth of cafes serving up a good cup of Joe. You can even stop by the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room for a behind the scenes look at the coffee empire.
Pike Place Market
One of the oldest continuously operated farmers’ markets in the US, it has become more of a city district than a simple market. A well trodden tourist hangout, it’s a great place to mingle with the locals and try the vast variety of produce.
Seattle’s historic music scene could tempt you to staying indoors all day and night, even after the rains stop. You can also catch a live show at the monumental Paramount Theatre.
One way roads
Seattle is made up of a lot of one way roads. A lot. For drivers unfamiliar with one way streets, this can cause a lot of confusion. Carefully plan your route through the city and be on the lookout for one way signs.
Given its nickname as the Rainy City, Seattle’s streets have a tendency of being slippery most of the year. And while the city doesn’t get a lot of snow, the roads can become very icy after a snowfall. Whatever the weather, drive sensibly.
The majority of street parking in the city is paid for and often requires cash, so always keep some small bills and coins handy.
One popular road trip to make from Seattle is north to Vancouver, Canada. If you plan on crossing the border, make sure you let your rental company know ahead of time to ensure you’ll still maintain your insurance coverage.
