Seattle draws residents from all over the world and it’s simple to understand why. The combination of natural surroundings and cosmopolitan cachet is difficult for even the most jaded city dweller to resist. Seattle bustles as a high tech haven, cultural test bed, culinary wonderland, and riot of retail outlets diverse enough to suit any temperament. Historic and trendsetting, Seattle sits on the physical edge of the continent and the leading edge of the breaking cultural wave. The Mariners and Seahawks; the Jimi Hendrix-inspired EMP museum; Pike’s Place Market; major retail around every corner—this is a city that defies characterization except to say: if you want it, we’ve got it.
