We are proud wearers of flip flops in the rain and snow. Shorts when it hits 50 and socks with sandals. I personally don't wear socks with sandals but I have seen those people out and about. When walking in Seattle you will notice the large amount of foot traffic around and that is always there. Walking here is just a way of life especially if you live downtown and parking is at a large premium. One or no car homes are very common but fear not everything is in your walking reach or on a quick bus ride.
Where I live is in a suburb off of Seattle but one day I would love to move downtown and live a true Seattlite life.
