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.

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.

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.

The best city on the West (best) coast. Everywhere off the w coast is crazy and I never leave it anymore unless I'm leaving the country or going to Canada. Seattle is the best of all worlds. lots of culture and diversity. Alot like San Francisco or Vancouver. Only problem is everything smells like piss there in summer there. Way, way, way too many homeless people.
Austin, TX & Halifax, NS only wish they were Seattle. You never get bored in Seattle unless your boring. Austin & Halifax bored me and all my freids within 3 days.
