Desperate for a heavy dose of cute? Meet a porcupette (soft-quilled baby porcupine), lion, jaguar and sloth-bear cubs, and the new Asian small-clawed otters at Woodland Park Zoo. Green Lake, 601 N 59th St.; 206.548.2500; zoo.org
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.
