Once associated with grunge music, Microsoft, Starbucks, the movie “Singles”, “Sleepless in Seattle”, and later “Grey’s Anatomy”, these days Seattle is a modern tech draw for people around the USA.
With the unmistakable Space Needle towering in its skyline (from the 1962 World’s Fair), the City on Puget Sound in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (Washington State) is surrounded by water, mountains, evergreen forests, thousands of acres of parkland, and is home to tech giants Microsoft and Amazon. While it does rain a lot, the Spring & Summer are glorious and green, perfect for outdoor activities.
