For those who like to accomplish something significant every summer, put the high dive at Madison Park Beach on your list. Sure, you could just loll about on the beach, looking cool amid the swarms of other sun seekers. But then you’d never learn just how big of a splash (or how high-pitched of a squeal) you can make.

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.
