Welcome to Seattle

Exciting city with hi-tech firms and eclectic entertainment

Seattle is one of the United States’ most exciting cities. Located off of the waters of Puget Sound, this seaport city has a rich history of music and hi-tech innovation. The birthplace of Amazon, grunge rock, Jimi Hendrix, and Starbucks, Seattle’s urban core is a thriving hub of culture and commerce, with numerous corporate headquarters, arts venues, hip dining and nightlife, and a booming tech sector. Known as the Emerald City for the lush Pacific Northwest scenery surrounding it, this dynamic city has lots to offer and a vast array of housing options to choose from. From luxurious waterfront penthouses and stylish modern condominiums to long-established neighborhoods of Craftsman homes and quiet family-friendly residential areas, you’re sure to find a place you’ll fall in love with.

Downtown Seattle’s retail options include Pacific Place and Westlake Center shopping centers, as well as flagship stores from big-name brands such as Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Zara. For a more boutique shopping experience, head to Ballard and explore unique retailers such as Bop Street Records (which stocks around 500,000 vinyl records), Twice Sold Tales for hard-to-find books, and Horseshoe for stylish womenswear. Belltown is a must-visit for fashion lovers, where you’ll find clothing stores like Endless Knot, Kuhlman, and Sassafras. Seattle’s dining scene is just as eclectic as its retail. Serious foodies can experience chef-driven dining at hotspots such as lunchtime favorite Il Corvo, artisanal Japanese soba spot Kamonegi, lively Latin American eatery Copal, and hip Ballard oyster bar The Walrus and The Carpenter. Located in the Queen Anne neighborhood, Canlis has been at the forefront of Seattle’s dining scene since the 1950s, and it continues to delight patrons with its innovative dishes and breathtaking views. Pike Place Market is one of the nation’s oldest farmers’ markets and a major attraction for tourists and locals alike. Explore Seattle’s expansive Chinatown-International District for flavorful Asian food, karaoke bars, and the colorful Grand Pavilion.

Seattle’s signature landmark is the Space Needle, an observation tower that is synonymous with the city. The Seattle Great Wheel at Pier 57 is another recognizable landmark that provides captivating views of the city’s skyline. Other Seattle attractions high on every visitor’s to-do list include the Museum of Pop Culture, the Pacific Science Center, the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum, and the Seattle Art Museum. Head to CenturyLink Field to see the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks or Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders in action, or visit T-Mobile Park to see Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners. Enjoy symphony orchestra performances at Benaroya Hall, opera and ballet at McCaw Hall, Broadway productions at The 5th Avenue Theatre, and live music at a plethora of rock and alternative venues, such as The Showbox, Tractor Tavern, and Neumos.

Seattle operates its own Seattle Public Schools District. Some of its top-rated schools include Cascadia and Frantz Coe Elementary schools, Hamilton International Middle School, and Roosevelt High School. Seattle is also home to the University of Washington, which has consistently ranked among the top 20 universities in the world.
