Experience Seattle!

United States West Seattle

A city of food, drink, music, and outside activities, whatever the weather, Seattle has a legendary status. The birthplace of Starbucks, Amazon, Expedia, and Microsoft, it also inspired Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, and Death Cab for Cutie artists as they grew up in this capital of Washington state. Its impressive rainy days make Seattle a beautifully lush city, surrounded by parkland and evergreen forests and the stunning Puget Sound.
