Tips from Seattle locals

Get advice about the city from the people who know it best. Local hosts share their tips and recommendations for travelers like you.

What should I pack?

Bring layers, comfortable shoes, and a compact umbrella Seattle isn't as rainy as legend has it, but we do get an aggressive mist for 9 months of the year. bring clothes that resist dampness and prepare for modest temperatures in the 40-50 degree range in the winter and 60-70 degree range in the summer.

Please be prepared for any type of weather! be comfortable. seattle is very informal. I suggest checking your weather app to get the day to day weather predictions

Pack a raincoat in the non-summer months It's not a coincidence that our landscape is so green.. we get rain! seattle's weather is pretty mild year-round, but you can definitely count on a little rain during your stay (if it's fall-spring).

Patty

Favor a jacket with a hood over an umbrella Seattle may rain but it doesn't rain hard. bring a water repellent jacket and you can flip up the hood whenever you need. plus you'll look more like a local without the umbrella!

Brian

Bring a jacket/coat with a hood You don't want to be caught in the rain without cover

What should I book before I arrive?

Theater/concert tickets! Seattle hosts incredible performers/shows year-round. if you have a free night on your trip, it is definitely worth looking into the shows that are in town. great venues to search are the paramount theater, 5th avenue theater, and benaroya hall.

What's the best way to get around?

The light rail is your best friend for traveling to the airport or downtown Beware that many, but not all light rail stations offer orca card vending machines. these are also available at several convenience store chains.

Molly

Buses, uber, and bicycles to rent are a great way to get around the city Bicycles to rent are available around the neighborhood. download the uber app and get picked up right at the house for city excursions.

Eastside lightrail opening 2020 The light rail is opening to the eastside 2020 take a ride!

Take a ride on the light rail! The light rail is great, it's seattle's version of the new york subway and it will take you right downtown to king street station where you can explore the stadiums, pioneer square, 1st ave, pike place market and pacific place shopping - the possibilities are endless!

Link light rail is the best bang for the buck to get around! The link light rail is a popular but comfortable public transport that everyone loves to take advantage of! it can take you to seatac airport and any places up north including downtown seattle and university of washington, which is a tourist attraction for their ancient 'hogwarts' library and the cherry blossom season, all with less than 10 bucks round trip and great views on the way!

Public transit is easy going north and south Opt for the public transit if you are mainly going just up and down seattle. think about springing for a lyft or uber if you need to go east and west.

Brian

Beautiful bike ride to pike place *** I'd strongly recommend picking up a rideshare bike (lime & jump here in seattle) and hop on the elliot bay trail bike path that links magnolia to the north end of the piers downtown. it's a goreous ride along the waterfront, giving you a spectacular feel of what it means to live on the puget sound. good bikeshare pickup location: walk 5 blocks north, you typically find bikes on 20th or 21st ave w. bike trail: elliot bay trail. go south along the balmer railroad yard, then hug the shoreline on 16th ave w and pedal thru elliot bay park, centennial park and myrtle edwards park

Public transit schedules If you plan to take public transit here, i recommend using google maps for transit schedules and also the app one bus away for real time tracking of pickup times. both are free and easy to use.

Isaac

There is limited public transport so it is advised to bring your own car Just one or two routes from one town to another town so you cannot depend on public transport. yes you can use uber or lyft if you want to.

What should I not miss?

Snowy candy cane lane from thanksgiving until christmas day If you're in town during the holidays check out candy cane lane at the bellevue square mall. it's a sight to behold and an elaborate experience both kids and adults will remember forever!

Take a trip on a ferry! There are a bunch of little islands in the seattle area, and ferries can take you to them in a short amount of time. i recommend going to bainbridge island for a quick bite. (you can walk to the tiny downtown from the ferry terminal.)

What are some local customs?

Island life Remember you are not in a major metropolitan area, the immediacy of things is not the same. this relates to taxis & spontaneous travel. if you are without a car you may need to book transportation ahead to secure it for flights & connections via the ferry. town is very walkable from the house, as is the ferry but if you do so at night you will need a flashlight. we have power outages in the winter due to wind storms this effects all of us again, we are an island not on the grid. this will sometimes interrupt internet, electricity etc. to experience the beauty of island living these are the trade offs. we are available to help & answer questions & the guidebook lists suggested places as well as phone numbers for services.
