As a Seattleite who thrives on summer activities, I am frequently asked, “What’re your favorite things to do in the summer?” While Seattle has great aspects to each season, there is something about Seattle summers that are pure magic. Suddenly everyone is in a great mood, the sun is out till 9pm and there’s no shortage on things to occupy your time.

Seattle summers are prime time for sightseeing, seasonal fairs and festivals, outdoor activities and limitless venues for arts and entertainment. Since there are so many options available during the summer months, I thought compiling my Seattle summer favorites may be a great way to get others excited for the months ahead.

In this blog, I’ll share some of the best things to do in Seattle during the summer, including sightseeing, physical activities, seasonal festivals, and more.
