Best time to visit Seattle, WA, USA?

  • The best time to go to Seattle is during the early fall when temperatures are still warm and weather is still dry but hotels are much cheaper. During this period, a rental for two costs around $175/night. That's 35% saved per day compared to what you would have paid in July. Average temperatures hover in the mid 60s, a few degrees colder than the average 75°F you would get during peak season.
  • Tourism peaks in Seattle in the summer, which comes with higher hotel and rental rates. If you're on a budget, try avoiding the Seafair week (August 4th - 7th), the Labor Day week (September 1st - 5th) as well as the Memorial Day week (May 25th - 29th) since accommodation rates peak the most during these times.
  • Don't forget to pack an umbrella if you decide to travel in January - March, it is the rainiest period in Seattle.
