7 Things to Put on Your Seattle Summer Bucket List

7 Things to Put on Your Seattle Summer Bucket List

Some people think the sun never comes out in Seattle. As Seattleites, we sometimes spread that rumor to keep this Pacific Northwest Paradise to ourselves. While you’ll definitely have rain in the winter, Seattle summers are hard to beat. From spending long days on the lake, to catching a 10 p.m. sunset, here are a few activities to add to your Seattle summer bucket list.

Take A Bike Ride

When the weather is nice, Seattle is a great city for biking . With bike trails throughout the city and beyond, spending an afternoon on one of Seattle’s many superb bike paths is a must during the summer.

Try Some Local Ice Cream

If you’re hoping to cool down with some ice cream this summer, our city has many great places to offer. Beyond your typical cone and scoop, we have many creameries that brag fresh ingredients sourced from local companies. A few to try include:

Visit Your Local Farmers Market

If enjoy cooking, shopping, and trying out the latest and greatest flavors in the city, checking out a summer farmer’s market might be for you. With markets in Ballard, Fremont, Capitol Hill, and many more, visiting your local farmers market is a great way to spend a summer day.

Rooftop Dining or Happy Hour

Seattle has a number of tasty and signature rooftop establishments. Whether you’re looking for a quick drink at happy hour, a place for a great meal or private party, Seattle has ample rooftops upon which you can wine and dine.

Catch Sunset on the Beach

Another benefit of living so close to the water is the summer sunsets. It’s hard to beat the view of a late night sunset from Golden Gardens, Alki Beach, Carkeek Park, or Discovery Park. Whether you bring a picnic and spend the evening there, or just make it before the sun dips below the horizon, this city is home to some great places to catch the sunset.

Try a Local Brewery

If you’re a fan of beer, Seattle will not disappoint. A few of our favorites include:

Take A Hike

Another great thing about the Emerald City is that it’s under an hour from some of the best hikes in the Pacific Northwest. Whether you’re looking for quick day hikes, lake hikes, or hikes for the whole family, this area is in no short supply of fun in the great outdoors.
