Seattle is a notoriously aesthetically futuristic city, with its spiraling silver towers and its iconic Space Needle. Yet, it is one surrounded by cold, northern seas and a number of other natural attractions that leave people coming back. It is a place that can be enjoyed all year round, but which is best experienced in the winter months. When you’re here, make sure to stay in a winter vacation rental to provide the best backdrop to your outdoor holiday. It will also keep you toasty warm on cold nights. Head to the iconic Puget Sound for whale watching and to hike along the edges of the coast, and explore the floral displays of Chihuly Garden and Glass. Gas Works Park provides green urban space with views of the city.
