  • SEA
The emerald city of Seattle stands as a beacon of vibrant coastal culture in the Pacific Northwest. Fueled by a steady supply of rainfall, Seattle and the surrounding area are truly emerald green and lush. Various outdoor activities can be undertaken in the pine-tree covered rain forests that surround Seattle and the entire Puget Sound. Nestled below the shadow of both Mount Rainer and Mount St. Helens, the city of Seattle has dozens of parks, vast gardens, zoos, and aquariums that help it maintain harmony with the surrounding nature. A 360-degree view of the iconic Seattle skyline can be taken in over a delicious meal from a rotating restaurant in the city's iconic centerpiece, the Space Needle. Seattle is now one of the wealthiest cities ... Read more
in the nation, with Bill Gates' Lake Washington mansion just one of dozens of 'Microsoft Millionaire' homes. The world's very first Starbucks is located in Seattle, as are some of the loudest NFL games when the Seahawks play at CenturyLink Field.
Seattle's reputation for wet weather is perhaps both deserved and overblown: it doesn't actually get as much total rain as many other U.S. cities, but it does have more days per year with at least some amount of precipitation. For your best chances of not having your picnic rained out, visit between March and September when the rain is least heavily concentrated and the city’s residents make their way outdoors for music festivals galore. Temperatures in this coastal city are pretty mild, rarely getting hotter than the low 80s (27°-29°C) in the summer or dipping below freezing in the winter.

Pagosa Springs, Colorado, USA

Had a very fun time in Seattle. The ride was very nice. The VIP wasn’t very different from the regular. The VIP included, fast pass to the front of the line, free t-shirts, leather seats inside, auxiliary input to play music, and a glass floor which was dirty and scratched up, making hard to see through.

Me and my brother went there last week, fantastic part of Seattle to visit, so you could be able to see the beauty of this city. I love Seattle.

It's a beautiful city that's got a great food scene too. I've been here several times and really enjoyed it. It's definitely a chill out city. There's things to do, like I highly recommend the Chihuly museum, but mostly is a city to explore than see the sights.

This is a great city to visit especially during the summer when it doesn't rain too much (bring jacket/umbrella anyway). Check out the waterfront area for walking and eating at the numerous restaurants.

Seattle is a beautiful area. I love all of the diverse food is options as it's very comparative to the bay area. If I had a choice to live somewhere else, Seattle would be it. Friendly people as well!

To be honest, I didn't really rate Seattle. I think perhaps I was biased because I just came from Vancouver and then moved on to Portland, two great cities by comparison. Seattle does have some things going for it such as all the attractions, the space needle being the most famous, and a wealth of places to eat and shop for local products. However the atmosphere is not very exciting and after a few days I was bored.

I moved Seattle few months ago and it has been the best experience of my life. Coming from Nashville Tennessee that says a lot. There's so much to do and so many beautiful things to see.

Who's a beerlover? Then you will defenitely love the handicrafted local beers. Try the fresh seafood as well. Seattle can be rainy and windy, so always bring your rainjacket and umbrella. If you don't want to spend all time in the City there are also possibillities for outdoor adventures mostly in summer. Seattle City pass will allow you to get access to EMP museum, the Seattle Aquarium, Space Needle, Pacific Science Center ( which is especially for kids and families) or optional the Woodland Park Zoo and Chihuly Glass Gardens. With the Seattle City Pass you can save money on the entree fees. Take a walk through Pike Place Market and do some shopping tours through the city Center. Don't miss to visit Capitol Hill where you can find nice restaurants, bars and LGBT friendly shops. A 4 hours trip with Boltbus to Vancouver is a trip worth!
