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.

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.

a city of extremely laid back yet extremely high-maintenance people
a person from Seattle will be ok with any type of restaurant (McDonalds to Rodizio) but upset if the table is within 20 feet of the kitchen.

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.

One of America's finest cities. Sometimes called the Emerald City. One of America's most educated cities. One of America's most "fit" cities. It is a city with clean air, lakes, mountains, culture, architecture, high-tech jobs and yes, plenty of rain. It lies in the Pacific Northwest along Puget Sound in Western Washington state. Although Seattle is known for having plenty of rain, it doesn't get as much rain as even Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, washington DC or New York. It's just that Seattle's rain is more misty and frequent. Seattle is for coffee lovers and is home to Starbucks and Seattle's Best coffee retailers. Seattle is also home to Amazon.com, COSTCO, Microsoft and Bill Gates. Even though its leading employer, Boeing, packed up and went to Chicago, Boeing still manufactures its aircraft there. Here is what makes Seattle Seattle:

1. Microsoft and Bill Gates and Paul Allen
2. Boeing
3. Amazon.com
4. coffee, especially Starbucks
5. rain
6. the Cascade Mountains and Mount Rainier
7. high-tech jobs
8. culture, especially its large Asian population
9. liberalism
10.homelessness
11.Puget Sound
12.Nordstrom
13.Pike Place Market
14.the Space Needle
Seattle is an awsome example of America's finest cities. Although not without its problems, it is still a great place to be. There is much more to like than dislike about this place.
