Find Something to Smile About This Month in Seattle!

Average temperature low and high: 50°-63°
May is giving us plenty of reasons to smile in the Pacific Northwest. From national musical acts to rip-roaring standup, Seattle is kicking things into high gear this month. As the weather starts to clear up, there will be plenty of opportunities to book bicycle tours along the water and take selfies at the Space Needle or just enjoy a boozy Cinco de Mayo brunch! Cap off the month by celebrating Memorial Day in style at any number of restaurants before experiencing all that Seattle has to offer after dark.
