Have visited this city twice during my assignment for Amazon.com. I think Seattle is one of most peaceful cities in US. Love everything about it except weather which mostly cloudy. You will die for sunshine here :-)
Seattle is a coastal seaport city and the largest city in the Pacific Northwest region of North America and the fastest-growing major city in the United States.The city is situated on a narrow isthmus between Puget Sound (an inlet of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington, about 100 miles (160 km) south of the Canada–United States border. A major gateway for trade with Asia, Seattle is the 8th largest port in the United States and 9th largest in North America in terms of container handling. It is home to some of the major companies like Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon and Starbucks.
