October in Seattle

October is still a transition month in Seattle. We can have beautiful warm days and blue skies as well as windy blustery days. So what can visitors do that is indoors?

We have many museums, including the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, Frye Art Museum (which is free), Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, Northwest African American Museum, and the Wing Luke Museum. At Seattle Center, home of the famous Space Needle, you can find the Experience Music Project, the Science Fiction Museum and the Pacific Science Center with interactive projects and the Imax Theaters.

In Pioneer Square there is the Gold Rush Museum and also the famous Underground Tours.

Book Stores: The Elliott Bay Book Company has relocated to Capitol Hill and is within walking distance to many of our Capitol Hill Bed and Breakfast accommodations. The downtown Seattle Public Library is a treasure not only for its collection, but also for its futuristic architecture.

Seattle is a music town with many venues, and also the host of the Earshot Jazz Festival running from October 14 to November 6th. There are many events through the city, from small intimate spaces to museums, and some events are free. A list of events and spaces can be found at: earshotjazz.org.

Restaurant Week is also a popular event running for 2 weeks, Sunday to Thursday, October 16th-20th and 23rd-27th. Many restaurants are located within walking distance of Seattle bed and breakfasts.

Whatever the reason you find yourself in Seattle in October you are sure to find something to do indoors and out. Ask your innkeeper!
