About Seattle

Seattle is located in a magnificent setting on the sparkling shores of Elliott Bay, with Lake Washington behind and the snowy peak of Mount Rainier off in the distance. Its modern skyline of glass skyscrapers is testament to the prosperity brought to the city by its many success stories including Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks, yet it still retains its pleasant down-to-earth ambience.

Seattle offers the perfect mix of urban attractions and outdoor recreation. You'll find funky coffee houses, hundreds of good restaurants, and myriad cultural venues, as well as a nationally acclaimed arts scene with vibrant movie and music industries. Recreation abounds with golfing, hiking and all manner of outdoor activities available within close proximity to the city centre.

Seattle's major landmark is the Space Needle, which was built for the 1962 World's Fair, and proudly stands at 605 feet tall. The Northwest Seaport Maritime Heritage Center is a popular destination for history enthusiasts and features an 1897 schooner. And the large Woodland Park Zoo and Seattle Aquarium are well worth a visit. Pike Place Market, one of the oldest continually operated markets in the US, sells almost everything and is a great place to explore - keep an eye out for low-flying fish at the famous Pike Place Fish stall.
