Seattle boasts a population just shy of 750,000 and is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest. With nearly 4 million people in the surrounding area, it's safe to say that Seattle is booming. Aerospace, the government, and technology serve as the areas largest employers with companies like Boeing, Microsoft, and Amazon getting the spotlight. Seattle is also the home of several major sports teams such as the Seahawks and Mariners.
"Living in Seattle has as much to do with what's outside the city proper as what's inside it". Natural beauty – mountains and water on two sides – surrounds Seattle. Residents find comfort after work or on weekends in wineries, ski resorts, hiking trails and sprawling parks and the city’s tree-lined streets. Seattle is home to many iconic attractions such as Pike Place Market and the Space Needle. Pike Place Market is the go-to place for local produce, fish, and more. The 605-foot Space Needle dominates Seattle's skyline where the tower's round observation deck offers spectacular views of the city and the nearby Olympic Mountains.
