Surrounded by thousands of acres of parkland, water, mountains and evergreen forests, Seattle’s incomparable natural beauty also encompasses a dynamic, urban city. Located on Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest, the Emerald City is home to many famous and notable landmarks, including Pike Place Market, one of the longest-running farmers’ markets in the U.S.; the Seattle Gum Wall, a landmark in the city since 1993; and the Space Needle, which was built in 1961 for the 1962 World’s Fair.
Washington’s largest city, Seattle is also one of the fastest-growing metropolises in the United States. Whether you seek a flourishing tech scene, a lively neighborhood culture, top-notch universities or scenic beauty, you’ll find all this and more in the Seattle area.
Additional reasons you’ll love this apartment community include:
According to the U.S. Census, Seattle places fourth for growth among the country’s 50 largest cities. Seattle is a national leader in job growth, according to LaborIQ, and is home to the headquarters of many noteworthy tech giants, including Amazon, Microsoft and Boeing, which employ more than 160,000 residents. Recently, Google, Adobe, Dropbox, Apple, Facebook and Snapchat have been added to the mix, and the city is second only to San Francisco in way of great U.S. tech cities.
Lifestyle and Culture
While similar to other large U.S. cities, Seattle also has some unique characteristics. The rainy weather affects all aspects of Seattle living, including the surrounding natural beauty and overall culture, and the Emerald City gets its fair share of rain. On sunny days when the clouds part, one of the most beautiful green places in the country is revealed.
Coffee culture permeates the area, and it’s said that the rainy weather may be the main reason Seattle is the number one hotspot for the nation’s coffee obsession. Of course, Seattle is home to Starbucks (there are 104 locations in the city alone), but there are also many smaller chains and independent coffee stands throughout the city. One study even estimates that per 100,000 residents, there are 35 coffee shops!
The Seattle food scene continuously delights foodies with a variety of choices ranging from high-end fare to cheap eats to food truck services. Breaking stretches of cabin fever during the winter months includes hearty breakfasts at local cafes before playing with your furry friend outside or hiking the natural beauty of the city.
