Tired of traveling to sunny, warm, beach destinations where the weather is always perfect? I don’t blame you! We too often idealize blue skies as a goal in our vacations, but the truth is that there are rainy places to visit that have their own charm.
Here are four especially rainy cities that you must travel to if you don’t mind getting a little wet.
Europe’s rainiest city is this port city on the Atlantic Coast of Norway, which has a gorgeous old town and a charming seaside walkway. Pack an umbrella, but get ready to see one of Norway’s best cities.
My favorite Canadian city might receive rain on an average of 170 days per year, but that makes it even more green and beautiful. Nature blends with cityscapes in this gorgeous, green, and eco-friendly city.
Santiago de Compostela, Spain
If you thought Spain was all about sunny weather and beaches, boy, were you wrong. Santiago de Compostela in the northwestern Galicia gets a ton of rain, which adds to the mystical charm of its old town and its world-famous Gothic cathedral.
So, what’s the rainiest city on Earth? It turns out that it’s Meghalaya, India, a place in which it rains essentially every day of the year. The city in itself is a small place, but travel outside to see natural tree root bridges and spectacular waterfalls.
