Bring an Umbrella for a Visit to Seattle this January

Average temperature low and high: 36°- 46°
If you love coffee, then you're going to adore Seattle. Known for the Space Needle, gorgeous hiking trails, and grunge music, the city offers plenty to do in January. Museums are your best bet (like the Seattle Pinball Museum), along with theater shows and the Woodland Park Zoo. And if "adventure" is your middle name, head to Leavenworth for some fun in the snow or take a ferry to the San Juan Islands (you might even see some orcas). Seattle has more to do next month, so stop by soon.
