Seattle is reasonably called the “Emerald City”, it is filled with beauty and dynamic culture, all against a striking backdrop of wondrous nature in the form of mountains, forests and water.
Seattle is both the largest city in the Pacific Northwest portion of the United States and the fastest growing in the entire nation.
It is also a fun city, highlighted by great shopping at places like the famous Pike’s Place Market — the oldest year-round public market in the United States. There, shoppers can buy some of the freshest seafood anywhere. The climate of the area features wet winters and warm, relatively dry summers.
Additionally, Seattle means business. Logging was Seattle's first major industry, but it has since given way to Internet technology, entrepreneurship, corporate headquarters, manufacturing, environmental technologies that focus on minimal energy use, forestry and exporting to Asia.
