To wet your appetite on many of the exciting features and attributes of the city of Seattle...

Seattle (and the Pacific Northwest, generally) is a vibrant community. Many significant companies including Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Starbucks, Costco, REI, Nordstrom, T-Moble, and Expedia to name a few have a huge presence here. It is clean, prosperous, safe, and fascinating.

Seattle is also known for supporting the Arts with a great eclectic theatre (Broadway, off-Broadway, and alternative) and a vibrant music scene (remember Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden and more recently Macklemore – the hits just keep on coming). It is one of the greenest cities in America, both in the sense of sustainability, and the color green because of our temperate climate. Surrounded by glacier-topped mountains, lakes, and Puget Sound – it has virtually unlimited options for recreation and tourism.

With warmest regards, we look forward to hosting you in the great city of Seattle!
