“Seattle has a peaceful, yet modern feel. Great food, engaging music and a mix of cultures leave you always wanting more. The mild weather only seems to further the feeling that time has a way of stopping while you sip coffee and look over the Bay.”
Seattle is located on the Puget Sound in the northwestern United States. Home to approximately 700,000 people Seattle is the biggest city in Washington state. Surrounded by lush forests and parks, mountains and water Seattle offers the pleasures of modern life and the peacefulness of nature. Voted the fastest growing city in the US in July 2013 Seattle is growing into a leading role among cities in America.
Seattle earned the name “Emerald City” because of the beautiful and lush regions in the area. On a clear day you can view the majestic snow-capped Mount Rainier and the beautiful idyllic waters of the Puget Sound. Everyone thinks of rain when Seattle comes to mind, but it’s not as bad as you think. You rarely need and umbrella (none of the locals carry them) and they clear up quick. A little rain is one of the few things you have to accept when you have views that are this great. It’s a small price to pay.
But this city is more than just mild weather and great natural views. Seattle is growing into an economic force and swiftly turning into a dynamic powerhouse. The area is famous for being home to companies like Microsoft and Starbucks but nearby you also have the headquarters for Eddie Bauer, T-Mobile and Expedia. Technology, real estate and the tourism industry have been growing rapidly over the past few years and show no sign of slowing down.
