Seattle

Seattle is a city set in a cradle of natural beauty. Gracing the shores of Elliot Bay, the green city of Seattle looks across Puget Sound to the rugged heights of the Olympic Mountains. Rising in seven steep hills, the city is tucked fast against the shores of Lake Washington, with the dramatically Cascade Mountain range further east. Graceful Mt. Rainier stands majestically against the skyline to the southeast, seemingly appearing and disappearing as the clouds move across the sky. Seattle is located in the State of Washington on Puget Sound, 113 miles (182 km) from the U.S.-Canadian border. Seattle is a commercial, cultural and advanced technology hub of the US Pacific Northwest and a major port city for trans-Pacific and European trade. Greater Seattle excels in livability with a mild climate, affordable housing, a full range of arts, cultural and sporting events, an abundance of shops and restaurants, and easy access to outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.
