Emerald City

Nicknamed the "Emerald City" because of its abundant evergreen trees, Seattle is the cultural and business center of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a popular holiday destination. Located on a narrow isthmus just 160 km (100 mi) south of the Canadian border, the city is one of the nation's top centers for high technology, housing several world-famous corporations that develop, manufacture, and sell computer software and consumer electronics. Seattle also boasts a rich musical heritage, especially noted for its role in the development of grunge rock. A city of cultural and ethnic diversity, Seattle houses large Native American, Asian American, and African American communities, combining to give this urban center a decidedly cosmopolitan flavor. Some of the city's main attractions include a good selection of museums, scenic parks, and historical tours. Seattle is in Washington (WA).

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
