Peak Season:

It generally rains a lot in Seattle but there is much less rain from April to October, and because the summer weather is mild, any time during this half of the year is pleasant. Summer is the most popular time to fly to Seattle and it stays light until 10pm in June and July. Book a flight to Seattle during summer to experience one of Seattle’s big, and primarily outdoor, festivals. During the occasional summer rain, there is nearly always something to see in the theatres and performance halls. From around mid-May to mid-September prices tend to rise, consequently cheap accommodations and cheap flights to Seattle around this time may be harder to find.

 Off Season:

The rainy season runs from October to April, however, in February travelers and locals can enjoy the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. Visit Seattle in February to see this five-day event that hosts entertainment for the whole family such as gardening fun, live music, food and wine. Florists, gardeners and designers all participate to put on a spectacular show of garden displays for visitors to view. There are also over 100 seminars hosted by gardening professionals who are on hand to share tips, tricks and ideas to jazz up your own garden. A slightly different event during the off season is Fremont Oktoberfest in Seattle which features the biggest beer garden in the Northwest with over 100 microbrews and craft beers on offer to taste and enjoy. This delightful and fun-filled event has attractions for all the family to enjoy such as the Oktoberfest 5k beer run, live Seattle Bands, a children’s area with horse racing and displays of the Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin carving.

When is the best time to book a flight to Seattle?

The best time to book a flight to Seattle is approximately one to three months before you travel; prices tend to be lowest during this period, and there are often ample seats available. If you’re traveling on a route that has very few flights, earlier is better. In most cases, it’s best to avoid booking two weeks or less before departure, as prices tend to rise steeply at this point.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Seattle?

Thursday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Seattle. Flying on Sunday will result in higher flight prices.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Seattle?

Flights at noon are typically the cheapest time of the day to fly to Seattle. Flights in the morning are usually the most expensive.

Seattle Travel Guide

Seattle is famous for coffee, and there’s certainly evidence of the residents’ love for it. Check out the “original Starbucks” (which has moved but still has its original vintage look) next to Pike Place Market as well as the abundance of independent coffee shops and roasters making their mark in the city. But book a flight to Seattle and you’ll see there’s more to Seattle than coffee. Pike Place Market itself, with its fruit, fish, cheese and flower sellers, is a feast for the senses.

For nature lovers, do not miss out on seeing the beautiful Puget Sound. Hop on a cruise for whale watching or head out to Bainbridge Island for a day trip. Ferry boats, a convenient way to travel and experience Seattle’s natural beauty, connect the numerous islands and shores throughout the waterways of Elliott Bay. Stay on dry land and walk through Seattle’s dozens of parks and enjoy the sight of sailboats roaming through the bay.

Finally, try shopping in the historic districts or attend one of the many festivals held year-round in Seattle. When you feel like taking a trip that combines both natural beauty and urban activities, Seattle is undeniably the place for you.

What’s the weather like in Seattle?

 Seattle is famous for its rainy weather, but the city experiences plenty of sunny days. The warmest months are July and August, when temperatures tend to hover in the mid 70s. Breezes off of the ocean can make for windy days and cooler nights, even during the summer. Winters are cold and wet, and during the spring and fall, expect moderate temperatures and frequent afternoon rainstorms.

How long is the flight to Seattle?

Seattle is one of the most popular northwestern hubs in the United States, so it’s a breeze to find a quick flight. From Boston, a direct flight to Seattle takes approximately five to six hours. If you’re traveling from Miami, expect to travel for just under seven hours. The farther west your departure city, the shorter the flight. From Chicago the trip takes about four and a half hours, and from Los Angeles, flights last just under three hours.

Which airlines fly to Seattle?

The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport welcomes more than 45 million passengers per yer on more than 20 airlines. Most major U.S. carriers fly into Seattle, including United, American, JetBlue, Southwest, Alaska and Spirit. The city is a Delta hub, so it’s easy to find flights from the U.S. and around the world. A range of popular international carriers fly into Seattle, including British Airways, Emirates and Lufthansa.

What should you pack for a flight to Seattle?

 No trip to Seattle is complete without an umbrella — rainstorms can come out of nowhere, even during a sunny summer day, so it’s best to be prepared. Or, do as the locals do and bring a hooded rain jacket to avoid losing your umbrella to high winds. Combat sea breezes with a light jacket during the summer. If you’re traveling during the winter, prepare for cold temperatures and rainy days with warm winter clothing. Another must-have is a pair of comfortable shoes, which can help you navigate Seattle’s compact, hilly downtown core.

What are some things to do in Seattle?

With its walkable city center and wide variety of attractions, Seattle is a traveler’s dream. Start your day by experiencing the local coffee culture. Stop in to one of the many independently owned coffee shops for a locally roasted blend, or walk down to the oldest operating Starbucks near Pike Place Market.
