Although Stockholm is nothing like northern Sweden (where I had to wear a wool sweater in mid-summer), be prepared for a little rain, even in the summer. And check the Yahoo weather forecast first.

In Stockholm, you can take the T (the subway), the tram, buses, or cabs. You don't need to rent a car. Public transportation is clean, safe, and comfortable. Some of the tourist trams don't start running until 10:00am. The cabs cost about the same as they do in the United States. Boat transportation is also available.
