"The Emerald City" is called such because of its lushness. Seattle is a seaport city in Washington State, known for its rain, big name companies, and greenery. Its place on the boarder of both the Cascade and Olympic Mountains makes Seattle perfect for both kinds of people: city lovers and nature lovers. Seattle is the home to big names like Boeing, Microsoft, and Starbucks, so whether you're looking for a family getaway vacation, or a business trip diversion, Seattle has you covered.
Things to do in Seattle
Seattle is the perfect blend of city life, sea life, and mountain life. If you're in Seattle, you have to check out the famous Seattle Space Needle, or else you haven't actually been in Seattle. The Pike Place Market is another key adventure, as it is one of the largest year-round farmers markets in the country. Hit the Seattle Art Museum and Seattle Aquarium for tours to get out of the rain, then head back out to one of the city's many parks for a stroll when the rain dies into a drizzle. In the summer, Seattle's San Juan Islands are a ferry ride away where you can go whale watching and kayaking without a drop of moisture from the sky. Right outside Seattle you have numerous hiking opportunities. If you visit in the summer, feel free to bring shorts, but make sure every other trip you bring your umbrella!
Seattle is a major city, so like any major city, you have lots of housing options that aren't just limited to apartments. Sure, you can find a condo accommodation in Seattle, but you can also find houses in the residential neighborhoods, or properties with ocean views. If hiking or walking is your meditation, find a rental near a park--they won't be hard to find! For a summer trip, book a week in a San Juan Islands rental to take advantage of the glimmering water and clear skies.
