“Seattle grew on me quickly when I moved here two years ago, at least once I survived my first winter. Although it’s hard to venture outside when it’s gray and rainy, some of the places below will keep your mind and body warm. On the flip side, you won’t want to spend any time indoors during what is arguably the country’s best summer (okay, maybe I’m biased), so be sure to check out some of the parks listed if you’re visiting in June, July or August.”
