It will also be a little out of the classic tourist routes of the West Coast , but Seattle , with its charm of a fresh contemporary city surrounded by beautiful nature, would be able to convince anyone who decides to reach it, even if the climatic conditions are not always favorable for the purpose of a comfortable visit: we are in the remote and cold American Northwest , in the state of Washington, just under 150 miles from the border with Canada; the hottest month is July, which barely reaches 25 degrees as the maximum temperature, settling on an average of 18-19 degrees.
The climate is slightly mitigated by the presence of the sea and the lake: the city is located in a strip of land between Washington Lake and Puget Sound Bay, that channels the waters of the Pacific into a complex of branches and inlets that reach as far as to touch the coast of Olympia, the capital of Washington.
