The city is a damp green gem, with an abundance of evergreen trees throughout, and spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Olympic mountains to the west.

Seattle offers a wealth of outdoor adventures, from kayaking to rock climbing. With so much to explore, whether it involves a history lesson, or a nature walk, you can’t go wrong choosing Odyssey Premier Elite to help book your next trip to Seattle!
Seattle is nicknamed The Emerald City for some very obvious reasons. The city is a damp green gem, with an abundance of evergreen trees throughout, and spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Olympic mountains to the west. The cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, the city and its surrounding areas are the home of the Space Needle, Boeing’s aircraft assembly plants, Microsoft, Amazon.com, Costco, Nintendo of America, Starbucks, T-Mobile, and the University of Washington, as well as a vibrant art and music scene and an excellent park system.
While Seattle is well known for its rain and dark, gloomy skies, it may surprise many how pleasant the weather can be, particularly during the summer months. November through March brings the worst of the unpleasant weather, with cool temperatures, heavy cloud cover and rain falling on most days. The short days and low angle of the sun during these months only add to the dark, gloomy feeling which is very unpleasant and depressing for some. The coldest month is January with average lows in the mid to upper 30s (about 3°C), with temperatures occasionally dropping below freezing. In contrast, the weather can be quite pleasant from April to October, with exceptionally nice weather in July and August where highs average in the mid-70s and rain is uncommon. Summer heat waves can push temperatures into the 80s and 90s, and despite only low to moderate humidity, they can be uncomfortable as air-conditioning is not prevalent in the city.
During your time in Seattle, there are historical places you can’t forget to visit! There is the Pike Place Market which is Seattle’s largest tourist area, and it’s the oldest continually operating farmers’ market in the United States. It is home to the famous fish market, original Starbucks Coffee shop, and a large indoor and outdoor market. Then of course, the most famous landmark in Seattle is the Space Needle. Other than wandering around exploring yourself, there are organized tours as well. Amongst the most interesting is the Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour. It’s Seattle’s most unusual attraction, a humorous stroll through subterranean storefronts and sidewalks entombed when the city rebuilt on top of itself after the Great Fire. The tour begins above ground in a restored 1890s saloon, then spills into historic Pioneer Square, before plunging underground for a time-capsule view of the buried city. All the while, tour guides regale you with sidesplitting stories our pioneers didn’t want you to hear.
