Washington State is known for its lattes, software companies and its music scene, and no area of Washington is more famous than Seattle. Known as the Emerald City, Seattle boasts gorgeous ocean and lake views in every direction, temperate weather, and a diverse culture. Nearby, Mt. Ranier provides a beautiful backdrop for the city.
It’s a thriving metropolitan area with an arts scene to please any tastes. While you’re in town, visit the Space Needle, catch an NFL or MLS game, ride the monorail to world class shopping, or take a whale watching tour to see the Orcas that call the puget sound home from April to September.
Seattle is home to some of the worlds best known companies, and its no surprise when 53% of the city’s population over the age of 25 hold a bachelor’s degree or higher (vs. a national average of 27%). The economy is driven by a mix of industrial companies, technology and retail giants like Microsoft, Amazon.com, Starbucks, Nordstrom, and Costco.
