Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet, thanks to its privileged position of being surrounded by lakes, sounds, bays, rivers, and every other body of water imaginable. And on a clear day, when the sun is out, the views of Mount Rainier are staggering. But that’s the thing: On a recent visit to Seattle, the sun barely shone, and mighty Rainier was nowhere to be found, hidden behind clouds. In fact, it rained a lot, as it tends to do in Seattle, especially in the fall. But believe it or not, the weather is part of this booming city’s many charms (that’s another thing you’ll notice about Seattle's expansion and increasing popularity—the construction).

The following is just a sliver of where to go should you find yourself in the Emerald City.
