Seattle

The Rainy City

climate

The days are usually cloudy and cold. In the summer time July and August are the best months of the year to visit. It is sunny and 60 during the day. In all other months of the year it is 40 and overcast that clears up at 8:00 at night.


Elevation

Seattle is 500 ft above sea level. Though the surrounding area is very high in the mountains. This means that most of the rain is dropped into the mountains leaving overcast most days but very humid


lodging

The Westin hotels are a landmark in Seattle. Two giant buildings that mirror each other. They are right in the thick of Seattle.


Food

If you are looking for a simple place to eat go to Starbucks, you can find one on almost any street corner. Although if you are looking for a more exquisite and fancy/pricy meal, go to the Space-needle. The great landmark that marks the city. It was built to host the world trade fair. Now it is a restaurant with a spinning floor that makes a full revolution every 45 minutes. You can go there for any meal or you can go to the observation deck. Did you know that it was used as Dr.Evil's layer in one of the austin powers movies?
