SEATTLE
Washington, U.S.A.
WHERE NATURE MEETS BIG CITY
Welcome to Seattle, aka Emerald City of Washington.
Located right by the Western Canadian border, the city with a population of 652,000 is world famous for being a brimming urban city situated amidst unparalleled nature. Built on hills and around water, the Seattle climate encourages rich vegetation and abundant natural resources. It tends to rain a lot here so bring an umbrella, but rejoice in the fact that what the city lacks in sunshine it makes up for with its fantastic urban areas and surrounding nature. When settlers first arrived in Seattle in 1851, they first called the settlement New York. After relocating closer to the harbor, the new village was renamed Seattle after a Duwamish Indian leader named Sealth, who had befriended the newcomers. Seattle is a landmark for more than celebrity grave. Nirvana's lead singer Kurt Cobain is buried here and martial arts legend Bruce Lee's grave can be found at Lakeside Cemetery. Seattle was also the birthplace of another kind of star, namely Starbucks coffee. The very first shop in the now gigantic chain opened here, and the place still stands! The city is also home to the longest running farmers market in America, Pike Place Market. Should you find yourself bored at the market, head over to the Post Alley Gum Wall, a wall completely covered in chewed gum. While Seattle has a true, vibrant city feel and one can choose to live in an edgy loft downtown, the beautiful harbor is one of its biggest attractions. The Seattle harbor is greatly utilized not only for trade and leisure; it actually has the largest houseboat population in the US!
