In addition to captivating exhibits, the brand-new Museum of History & Industry, at the south end of Lake Union, offers a couple of intriguing peeks at our city. Check out the view through the periscope in the historic bridge room, and step inside the giant “Wawona” sculpture in the atrium to look at the lake lapping below.

There are 93 days between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox—that’s 93 official days of summer. But as experienced Seattleites, we know that number doesn’t translate to 93 days of sun (we’d be thrilled just to break last year’s record of 48 clear days in a row). That’s why our summer guide offers ways to make the most of every summer day—rain or shine.
