Living in Seattle
It's the birthplace of Starbucks®, home to the iconic salmon-slinging fish mongers of Pike Place Market and a cultural beacon of the Pacific Northwest. Welcome to Seattle, Washington! Whether you're a current resident of the city or are moving to the city for the short-term, you'll find that Seattle never ceases to amaze you with new restaurants, interesting sites, and exciting festivals.
As the largest city in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is known for many things, including its floating bridges, underground cities, hidden stairways, plethora of roundabouts, and being the birthplace of grunge music. Seattle residents enjoy the best culture that city life offers, and all against the stunning backdrop of Mount Rainier, a 14,000 ft. volcano that's visible from almost anywhere in downtown Seattle! Forests, water, and mountains are never too far off either. Downtown Seattle sits on a hilly strip of land nestled between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington. Orcas, seals, and waterfowl can often be spotted on early morning ferry rides and from the pier near Pike Place Market.
