Seattle is the most northern major city in the united states, about 100 miles south of the Canadian border and 170 miles north of portland oregan. It is also home to over 3.7 billion residense in the metro area. Seattle is the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix, Bruce lee, The Wailers, Nirvanna, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam which made the 'grunge' scence so popular here. Also the birthplace of rapper sir mix alot. Also the companies that were started here are; Starbucks, Tully's coffe, microsoft, nordstrom, Bungie (makers of halo),, Uwajimaya and UPS. But most famous for The Pike Place market, The Spaceneedle, and The Moore theatre. Another touristy attraction is the underground Seattle. Seattle was ranked number 1 over new york and every other major citry in the u.s. for the most car-conjested city in the united states, and is ranked number 14 out of 360 other cities for size in square miles.

Okay now those are just facts my opinion is seattle is the most best place to live for sure. The people here are nice and friendly, and theirs no such thing as the seattle freeze someone from portland probly wrote that. If you're a tourist people will gladly point you in the right direction to where you're going also if you're new or just visiting a good place to go is a place called view point park in west seattle worth the cab or bus ride to see the city's skyline especially at night it is a must see.

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.
