Feb 23 2021, 12:47 am

On average, we see around 150 rainy days in Seattle.

Just because it’s raining, however, doesn’t mean that you should stay inside curled up watching Netflix, although that’s not a bad idea either.

In case you’re sick of sitting on your couch, here are nine indoor activities for you to enjoy in Seattle.

Being a Seattleite, you’ve probably been in the Space Needle once or twice. Yes, it’s a little bit of a tourist trap, but after the long 2020 we’ve had, you really deserve a vacation. If you’re feeling fancy, enjoy drinks on the deck at sunset.

Location: 400 Broad Street, Seattle

Dinner in the Great Wheel

Starting at 5 and 6:30 pm, hop into a private gondola with up to three household members and enjoy delicious eats from The Fisherman’s Restaurant and Bar.

Included in the $152.50 dinner is the private gondola ride, four-course meal, a parking voucher for $125 per guest, ride tax, and 20% service charge. Bookings can be made on Resy.

Location: 1301 Alaskan Way, Seattle
