Today Seattle is home to some of the world's biggest tech giants including Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. Thus, the city enjoys an exciting, energetic vibe with lots of tech meetups and networking events organized by popular platforms like GeekWire. The main conference and convention centers are Bell Harbor International Conference Center with its excellent waterfront location and the premier Washington State Convention Center.

What to Do in Seattle in Winter 2020

Heading to Seattle in the winter means you can use it as a jumping off point for winter sports. The temperatures do not get too cold between December and February, hovering between the upper 30s and upper 40s with several days of rain. You can drive to the North Cascades, Snoqualmie Pass, or the Wenatchee State Park to go skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. If you are in the city on New Years Day, there is a polar bear plunge in Lake Washington. And an annual bike race on Bainbridge Island is a popular event at the end of February. Because it can also rain a lot in winter, it is best to have some indoor activities on tap. You can head to the Pike Place Market for food or to see fish fly through the air. Visit the Museum of Pop Culture, the Museum of Flight, or the Asian Art Museum. If you plan to head out of the city for winter sports, rent an SUV and be sure to ask about winter tire and ski rack availability.
