Now is the best time to visit Seattle, according to U.S. News & World Report. Fewer crowds, lower prices, and not too much rain. October in particular offers visitors and locals alike the opportunity to sample several popular restaurants at reasonable, fixed-price lunches and dinners. Seattle Restaurant Week runs October 19-23 and again October 26-30. More than 160 restaurants are featuring three-course dinners for $30, and some offer two-course lunches for $15.
