What more can be said about Seattle than has already been said. Seattle is home to Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Pike Place Market, The Space Needle and Grunge but there is so much more to Seattle than landmarks, technology and business. The city is teeming with history and diversity.
Seattle is located in the Pacific Northwest in Washington about 96 miles south of Canada. The Seattle area has been inhabited for approx. 4000 years although European settlement didn't happen until around the mid-19th century. Since then the city has become home to many different cultures and this can be seen in the different areas of the city.
We had the opportunity to visit Seattle in 2002 and we were taken by the beauty of it. Not only is the downtown area one of the most breathtaking but the view around the city is spectacular. We hope you enjoy the few pictures we took (it was all so amazing at times we forgot to take pictures) and we look forward to visit this fine city again in the future.
