16. We end summer with one of the most underrated state fairs
Every year more than 1.3 million people “do the Puyallup,” where they hit the rodeo, hop on thrill rides, and most importantly, eat scones. Lot’s of them: the famous Fisher Scones have been around for over 100 years, and sold their 100 millionth scone in 2011.
17. Best of all, Seattle's summer lasts longer than anywhere else
We're not joking: because we have the longest days of anyplace in the lower 48, we have more daytime hours than anyplace else. And thanks to our “Indian” summers, they last until like, October. And then it turns gray until May, so enjoy it while you can.
