Welcome to Seattle, Washington
Seattle sits in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S., a world class city nestled in glorious natural wonders and a watercolor of greens, blues and heather grays.
Lush forests border the Emerald City, while the white peaks of the Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainier loom in the distance, and multiple bodies of water surround this evergreen destination: Lake Washington to the East, Puget Sound to the West, and Lake Union to the North. Within the city itself are countless parks, beaches, and even an arboretum. This city encourages you to get outdoors!
The iconic Space Needle will entice you up to its observation deck for a bird’s eye view of the city. More spectacular views of the city’s classic skyline, including the Space Needle and mountains, are found on the observation deck of Smith Tower, at Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill, and from the deck of a ferry as you explore the waterways.
Admire the historic buildings of Pioneer Square, visit the Seattle Museum of Flight and the Art Museum, stroll the waterfront of the busy harbor, shop for seafood and souvenirs at Pike Place Market, and take in a coffee shop crawl to include the first Starbucks store ever. At night, catch Seattle’s legendary music scene and cozy bars.
Day trips from the city come with fresh air, amazing wildlife, and breathtaking nature. Stroll Mount Rainier National Park’s raised boardwalk through the 1,000 year old Grove of Patriarchs or take a scenic drive around the base of the mountain itself. For the quintessential Northwest Beach, walk amongst the rocks and driftwood on Ruby Beach.
