Do you like the moody atmosphere of cloudy cities more than bustling beaches? In the list below, Trip Support will list the 10 cloudiest cities in the US. Here they are in no particular order.
The beautiful city of Seattle, Washington may have been founded in 1851, but it’s no oldie. Seattle is home to fantastic art museums, festivals, and a unique culinary landscape. We recommend taking to the streets with an umbrella in hand for a walking tour of all its sites as it tops our list of the cloudiest cities in the US. If you don’t like walking through the busy city streets, however, why not head to Kerry Park?
Kerry Park has obscure sculptures and amazing views of the city. If you are the artsy type, head to one of Seattle’s amazing galleries and indulge in everything from Modern to Baroque art. To finish off your Seattle adventure, why not head to the Seattle Space Needle, which has an amazing view of the entire rainy city?
Portland is the capital of Oregon, located on the West coast of the United States, just south of Washington State. Portland is the place to be if you have an affinity for marijuana, as Oregon is one of the few states to have legalized it for recreational use. Portland is also host to an amazing array of places to hike and explore. One day you can head to Mt. Hood, then the next day to Columbia River Gorge.
Why not book a wine tour to make memories you will never forget?
Portland is also home to Gardens like the Portland Japanese Garden or the International Test Rose Garden. Why not go for a romantic outing with that special someone and take them to see some of the 550 varieties of roses that call these Gardens home?
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a perfect locale for coffee or tea in one of its local coffee shops or tea rooms, perfect for its cloudy weather. If you are a fan of pop art or the Velvet Underground, then you will enjoy the Andy Warhol Museum, found just north of the Allegheny River.
For those who love our feathery friends, we think you will love the National Aviary, which groups birds together by habitat, so you can explore it at ease.
Buffalo, New York
Architecture is well-loved in Buffalo, New York, being home to architectural visionary Frank Lloyd Wright’s ideal residential home. You can tour the famed Martin House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and explore what he considered to be the greatest home for residential living in the world. Check the weather before you step out as it is one of the cloudiest cities in the US.
Other architectural hotspots found in Buffalo are its City Hall, the Buffalo, the Erie County Botanical Gardens, and the Ellicott Square Building. If you want to tour the city, the double-decker bus tour is perfect for you. The buses also host an interactive disco murder mystery—unleash your inner detective. You can also head to the Naval and Military Park and see war boats.
Ohio is just off the coast of Lake Erie and is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, perfect if you are a fan of rock music. They offer everything from Nirvana to The Doors. Another popular location we think you will love is the Great Lakes Science Center, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, and math.
The final place we recommend you check out in Cleveland is the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, home to over 3000 animals. If you live near the great lakes, why not make visit Cleveland, Ohio?
Detroit, Michigan is home to the Tigers and the Red Wings, so you can almost always find a sports game to attend. If you aren’t a sports fan, Detroit also has a slew of museums and galleries to explore. For example, the Detroit Institute of Arts has a massive collection ranging from Claude Monet to Vincent Van Gogh, a must-see for art fanatics.
It will make you feel like a kid as you explore the various vintage homes that were owned by everyone from the Wright Brothers to the inventor of Heinz ketchup. Detroit is an amazing city with so much to do and also the cloudiest cities in the US.
Juneau, located in the USA’s northernmost state, is considered the cloudiest city in the US. Juneau has a rather small population of only 31,848 people, but that’s not to say there aren’t things to do here.
Another one of Juneau’s attractions is the Mendenhall Glacier. The trails leading to the main attractions of Juneau are not too hard to walk, so you will have no trouble finding your way to the Mendenhall Glacier.
Rochester, New York
Rochester is the home of James Caleb Jackson, who was credited with the creation of breakfast cereal. One of Rochester’s must-sees is the Strong National Museum of Play.
With around 5 hours of content for you to browse, the Strong National Museum of Play has fun for everyone, whether you are interested in electronic games or toys. Another museum in Rochester is the George Eastman Museum, which is devoted to film and photography and is the oldest museum of photography in the world. This is a must-visit for anyone who is interested in either of these industries.
If you couldn’t have guessed, Ohio is a very cloudy state, which is why we are featuring two cities from that state. If you are an art goer, we recommend you head to the Columbus Museum of Art.
This art museum is focused on abstract sculpture, with many thought-provoking pieces that will warp your perception of colour and shape. The Museum has a new exhibition opening in November, which will focus on Vincent Van Gogh. This art museum also has the Wonder Room, which is an imaginative and experimental part of the gallery that involves textile-based art.
One of the COSI’s permanent exhibits is about the Ocean, which teaches you about the ocean with hands-on activities.
No one really knows the origin of Burlington’s name. We recommend that you bring your bike with you because Burlington has an amazing bike path that heads around Lake Champlain.
Burlington is also home to the Church Street Marketplace, containing hundreds of stores for you to explore and beautiful buildings to admire. The final thing we think you should do in Burlington is to go on the Lake Champlain Ferry, which offers stunning views of the city.
