The largest city in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Although many people who have never been to the city claim that there's nothing there but coffee, rain, and computers needs to wake up and go there. It is a beautiful, relatively safe, green city, with plenty of great choices for restaurants, very friendly and polite people, different kinds of beaches around to go dipping in during the summer, and a very casual tone. As for the weather, it is rainy and a little cool, but not cold, in the winter. However, the summers are comfortably warm, sunny, and dry; arguably the best kind of summer you could ask for. And yes, we do care about the environment, but why is that such a bad thing anyway?

The only problem is traffic, and lack of a good public transportation system, but hey, we have feet for a reason.

Bottom line is, Seattle may not be as well-known as New York City, but it's worth a visit if you don't already live here.
Dude #1: Hey, where are you going this summer?
Dude #2: Uh, I don't know, where do you recommend?
Dude #1: You should go to Seattle, it's a great city.
Dude #2: But I thought it always rained there, and that everyone was just a coffee addicted computer geek...?
Dude #1: It ain't so, man, go in July, you'll love it.
Dude #2: Aight.

The Emerald City, a gem to the Pac. Northwest. Home to the Space-needle, Bank of America tower, Key West Arena, Safeco Field, and Seahawks stadium, it is truly an up-and-coming city.

It also happens to be a haven to people with -all- interests and styles of life, as shown by another definition to Seattle.

And ohh yeah, we're smart, too.
I'm so glad to live in Seattle.

One of the most picturesque cities not only in the U.S., but the world.
Home of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Safeco Field/Seahawk Stadium, Boeing Field, and some great views out into the mountains, especially Mt. Rainier.

See also Seatown, Emerald City, and Rainy City.
Everyone needs to visit Seattle at least once in their lives.

The best city on the West Coast. Despite the rain (which makes the place nice and green), great people, great coffee (Hence Seattle AKA Latteville) and lots of things to do. Also the place of Microsoft Comps, and people who are really into high-tech activities.
That computer whiz is from Seattle area.

A city in Washington State.

What can I say? I live in California, and I hate it. Seattle is my place, and even though it does has it flaws, I still, and always love the Emerald City.
Seattle, A Jewel Of The Pacific Northwest.

1. The Greater Seattle Area (including the east side) is home to Bill Gates, Starbucks, the Mariners, and Bungie (the makers of Halo), and Microsoft (the sole poineers in the blue screen and the creators of the Xbox).

2. The fittest city in America

3. One of the smartest Cities in America
