Seattle is one of the fastest-growing cities in North America, combining stunning natural beauty with all the attractions of a major metropolis: a vibrant arts scene, professional sports teams, fabulous food and shopping, and abundant recreational opportunities.

The downtown core, overlooking Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains beyond, includes the iconic Space Needle and giant waterfront Ferris wheel, a thriving retail core, and Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market, a nine-acre historic district filled with shops, food vendors, craft stalls, and street musicians.

Within an hour’s drive or ferry ride, you can be hiking or skiing in the Cascade Mountains, cycling on an idyllic island in Puget Sound, picking produce at an organic farm or enjoying a tasting at one of Washington’s acclaimed wineries.

With a temperate climate, distinctive neighborhoods, healthy economy and exceptional educational institutions — including the University of Washington — Seattle is a great place to put down roots and raise a family.
