A place with great weather from June-September
Seattle had a streak of 50-some days straight of 70+ degree weather this summer.

About as far away as you can go and still stay in the Lower 48. There is an obsession with kings there, with the now destroyed Kingdome, the fact Seattle is in King County, and KING-TV. Of course, the king of the world, Bill Gates, who partly contributed to this and every other entry on this page, lives near Seattle, in Medina.

Seattle has it's ups and downs.

Washington is a beautiful place and Seattle can be wonderful. There is so much to do there. It's home of the Pike Place Market, the Seattle Mariners, and Starbucks. Seattle is near so much. You have the mountains for snowboarding/skiing/hiking. You have the water for boating/swimming. You have everything you need in Seattle/Washington.

The only problems are that Seattle has horrible traffic and it rains a lot. (Although, personally, I don't think the weather is THAT bad year-round.. and I live there.)
Seattle, Washington. In the US.

The nicest city in the United States. Filled with intellectual democrats who enjoy good books, good coffee, and good conversation. The people of Seattle are generally very friendly, the city is absolutely beautiful and is easy to say has the most class and culture of any place in the U.S. Portland comes in 2nd.
Everyone wishes they were from Seattle.

Seattle is probably the most beautiful and picturesque city in the Northwest.

Known for the Space Needle, the coffee, the boating, Microsoft, hilly-terrain, and it's alternative/grunge rock bands, Seattle is a great place to live and visit.

Unlike Tacoma, Spokane and Portland, Seattle has a definite and distinct personality.
There are many activities and places to explore in Seattle, and it has a great music scene.

As far as cities go, Seattle is unusually clean, despite the homeless population. Crime is relatively low, and for the most part, it's completely safe.

Did I mention Seattle has the most beautiful night-skyline in the country?

If you're in Western Washington, come visit Seattle.
Ignorant Peon: Seattle is just a haven for rain, coffee drinking pseudo-intellectuals, and liberals.

Me: You're right, but it's more beautiful than your city!

Ignorant Peon: Damn. You're right. I'm sick of being wrong all the time. I wish I was as cool as you.

The best time to visit Seattle is June-August. The weather is nice, people are out and about, and the city is flourishing with fun stuff to do.
