Urban myths abound in America, but no greater myth than the one that proclaims Seattle as a “rainy city”. Try engaging one of the locals over a cup of Starbucks’ coffee – a Seattle-based company – about the weather, and they will most happily tell you that they receive less rain than New York City, Miami, Boston and San Francisco!
But the delightful climate is just one of the factors that make a holiday to Seattle a great choice of destination. The natural beauty of the surroundings plus the relaxed and welcoming nature of the inhabitants have made major corporations such as the afore-mentioned Starbucks, Microsoft and Boeing choose to make Seattle and its suburbs home.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
