Spotlight On Seattle: What To Do And Where To Stay (PHOTOS)

Seattle may be known for it's rain (among many other things -- Starbucks, anyone?) but that shouldn't stop you from getting out and exploring all the city has to offer.

Fortunately, our "What to Do in Seattle" list includes outdoor and indoor fun just in case the clouds get too ominous.

Whether you want to hit up the major tourist sights or do as the locals do, we have an activity for you, and a hotel that's convenient for each.
