    So, so much more than a 90s grunge scene and Starbucks

    To truly fall in love with Seattle, you have to embrace the many neighborhoods that comprise the city. Opt for a Seattle vacation rental in a pocket that best matches you and your travel squad's personality: are you artsy, urban, cosmopolitan, posh, or eccentric? Embrace the city's general air of positive crunchy earthiness, and you'll understand why everyone in these diverse neighborhoods can cohabitate so comfortably together. Prepare yourself for a visit full of incredible food, friendly locals, and vibrant nightlife, all fueled by a cafe scene that's so much more than the birthplace of Starbucks.

    From the Puget Sound to the newest sounds

    There are many different ways to see Seattle—on bike, with a guided walking tour, or from a boat tour cruising the Puget Sound. You can easily pack in the city's highlights, but there's something to be said for grabbing some wares from the market and enjoying a picnic in Discovery Park. If the nightlife is calling your name, take in a show at an iconic club like The Showbox at The Market, or The Crocodile. You just might find yourself on the cutting edge of the "next big thing."

    What happens when an entire city is fueled by caffeine?

    Two places spring to mind when you picture Seattle: Pike Place Market and the Space Needle. Both are great stops, and be sure to explore their surroundings. Take the kids to the Seattle Aquarium, located on Pier 59 on the Elliott Bay waterfront. Swing into the original Starbucks and see how the coffee stacks up to the other nearby cafes, or grab a bag of beans for your Seattle vacation rental. Pay a visit to the Frye Art Museum or the Seattle Art Museum, or brush up on local history at the Museum of History & Industry.

    Don't worry, all that rain is (basically) a rumor

    Thanks to its rainy reputation, the Pacific Northwest is an really popular destination during the summer (think drier days), but there other attractive times of the year. So while you are more likely to find sunny days waiting from you from June through August, consider booking your Seattle vacation rental in spring or fall. You're likely to find the weather is moderate and prices are a bit lower than peak season. If you're really looking for a good deal, plan your visit for December or January, but these are the chilly wet months of the year.

    The City of Seven Hills will get your heart pumping

    As the largest city in both Washington State and the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is also one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. This much loved mecca is extremely hilly, with the majority of its most popular neighborhoods nestled atop its seven hills. Seattle is surrounded by the Puget Sound to the west and Lake Washington to the east, and set against the backdrop of the Olympic Mountains. Downtown Seattle is bordered by Elliott Bay, which opens into the Puget Sound and makes Seattle a major seaport city.
