We chose Seattle, located on Puget Sound, for its picturesque views and easy access by air from just about anywhere. This city is surrounded by water, mountains, and forests while also being a tech hub hosting large companies such as Microsoft and Amazon.
Seattle is a dynamic city with a number of attractions such as the historic Pike Place Market (home to the original Starbucks), the Space Needle, and numerous museums such as the Museum of Flight, Museum of Pop Culture, and the Chihuly Garden & Glass Museum. Back in the 1990s, grunge music raised Seattle’s profile and the city is still home to a vibrant independent music scene, in addition to being known for its coffeehouses, breweries, and farm to table cuisine.EXPLORE SEATTLE
