When the sky is clear, a daytime meal atop the Space Needle at SkyCity is a superb reason to linger and enjoy the view while the whole city revolves around you (or is it the other way around?). Skip the pricey dinner hour and opt for the prix fixe weekend brunch instead. Bonus: visits to the observation deck are free whenever you dine at the SkyCity restaurant. Sat.–Sun., 10 a.m.–2:45 p.m. $45.95 per adult. spaceneedle.com
There are 93 days between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox—that’s 93 official days of summer. But as experienced Seattleites, we know that number doesn’t translate to 93 days of sun (we’d be thrilled just to break last year’s record of 48 clear days in a row). That’s why our summer guide offers ways to make the most of every summer day—rain or shine.
