Welcome to Seattle

Seattle is a picturesque seaport on America's West Coast. Home to around 730,000 residents, this friendly metropolis is the largest city in Washington State and the entire Pacific Northwest. It's regularly ranked among America's best places to live because of its dynamic arts and culture scene, its robust economy, and its scenic surroundings.

Numerous local colleges and universities have helped make Seattle's population one of the country's most educated. That's attracted leading employers in the aerospace, technology, banking, and consumer goods industries to Seattle. Don't let the iconic gray weather get you down. Great restaurants, entertainment venues, and top attractions give Seattle residents plenty of reasons to smile in even the gloomiest conditions. 

Special Points of Interest

Seattle residents might work hard sustaining the city's strong economy, but they also know how to play hard. No matter your interests, the Emerald City has great leisure facilities. Seattle is home to more than 100 theaters and acclaimed arts groups including the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and the Seattle Opera. For more contemporary music, head to Neumos, Café Racer, or Tractor Tavern. You might just see the next Pearl Jam, Macklemore, or Death Cab for Cutie. The atmosphere at the Seattle Mariners and the Seahawks home games is unbeatable, so don't be surprised if you switch allegiances once you arrive.

Don't leave local attractions to Seattle's visitors. Playing tourist in your new city is great fun. Everyone needs to admire the view from the top of the Space Needle at least once. Look out to downtown Seattle, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Elliott Bay, and Mount Rainier from the 520-foot observation deck or from your table at the Needle's rotating restaurant.

The Museum of Pop Culture is one of Seattle's newest attractions. A celebration of contemporary popular culture, the brainchild of Microsoft's Paul Allen has exhibits focused on science fiction, horror films, video games, and the music of local icons including Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix. 

Seattle also has historic attractions, like the Woodland Park Zoo. Animal lovers have visited this charming zoo since 1889. Exotic exhibits like Tropical Asia, the African Savanna, and the Northern Trail let you take a global tour without ever leaving the city. The butterfly house and solar-powered carousel are always popular with young guests.

For more animal fun, head to Seattle Aquarium. It's been a waterfront fixture since 1977, but renovations in 2006 have made this marine park even more appealing. Locally-focused exhibits Window on Washington Waters and Crashing Waves are among the new additions. They complement longtime favorites including the Underwater Dome and interactive tide pool touch zones.

Seattle also hosts several great festivals throughout the year. The Seattle International Film Festival is a 24-day celebration of cinema from all corners of the globe. Attending Northwest Folklife — an ethnic arts and culture festival — is a fantastic way to spend your Memorial Day weekend. Seafair celebrations make July and August fun. Seattle's Gay Pride festival is one of America's largest and most colorful. Satisfy your food cravings at local gourmet events including the Seattle Street Food Festival, the Plate of Nations Ethnic Food Festival, and the Northwest Chocolate Festival.
