More About The City

About Seattle, WA

Located along the Puget Sound in the shadow of Mount Rainier, Seattle is known as both the "Emerald City" and the "Star of the Pacific Northwest." The fashionable locale offers a hip, urban environment influenced by outdoor style and activities. Once a thriving port town that served the timber industry, Seattle is famous these days for coffee and microchips. When you visit, make sure not to miss the Space Needle or Pike Place Market. It's even likely that rainy days won't dampen your fun when you sightsee, shop, and sample exceptional foods in this vibrant city. Seattle, after all, is young at heart and still defining itself as the young are wont to do.
Seattle, WA Factoid
Here comes the rain again... Seattle may have a reputation for rainy days, but it's not completely deserved. Locked between mountains and subject to warm offshore currents and cold fronts from the north, Seattle averages 37 inches of rain a year. Believe it or not, New York and Miami are wetter. Nevertheless, the best months to visit tend to be July and August.
