I love my city! It does not rain as much as it does in NYC! We do have grey days but when the spring and summer comes we remember why we live here. It has everything whether you are a foodie, music lover, shopper, culture, funkiness, or a lover of the great outdoors. Where else can you be surrounded by bodies of water that you can dine by, play by, or work by. If you decide to visit the big secret is how beautiful the weather is in September and October. Come and visit, many who do never leave!

Always a great time! Would absolutely love to live here if there was just a tad bit more sunlight. Things to do: Pike Place and other farmers markets, buy local and try coffee.Recommended for:

Buy last-minute backpacking supplies at REI Seattle Flagship store before embarking on that trip to nearby Olympic National Park. Pacific Crest Trail, a conglomerate of state park and rails-to-trails efforts spanning the West Coast takes several weeks to complete but is well worth the effort.Recommended for:

I've just been through the airport a few times and made it downtown once on a layover so I can't say that I have enough information to make a complete assessment quite yet but I'll be up visiting the Northwest soon and perhaps I'll have an opportunity to get to know Seattle a bit better.Recommended for:

I visited Seattle this past summer and absolutely love it! Granted, the weather was nice and sunny when I was there, and it's not like that year round, but I'm sure it's beautiful all year round! People are really friendly, city and waterfront is beautiful, air is clean, and food is delicious! I would definitely recommend a visit if you're considering Seattle!Recommended for:

A great city for a variety of tastes. Music, food, theater, outdoor pursuits and the list goes on. Pike Place is always on my list when visiting this great city. Indulge in a day ferry ride and enjoy the views of both the skyline and the mountains.Recommended for:

Once you get used to rainy weather 97.4 percent of the time (or so it seems) this relaxed yet culturally vibrant city along Puget Sound has a lot to offer. Like San Francisco, it's a thriving urban environment filled with great cultural happenings and ethnic food, situated in close proximity to hiking and all sorts of other outdoorsy activities for nature nuts like myself. It's no wonder REI has its headquarters here.Recommended for:

Seattle was long just a stop along the I-5 in Washington state for me, before I rolled north to the Canadian border to reach Vancouver, BC. But going back to explore it recently, I was blown away by how much the city has grown and how much it has to offer, from the fish markets and artisanal food vendors at Pike Place Market to the quiet Japanese garden by the Washington Park arboretum. Make sure to explore the Pioneer Square area, the Queen Anne neighborhood, and take a gander at the locks of Ballard, the old Scandinavian community, while you're here.Recommended for:

A city so intertwined with nature they swirl and melt into each other like perfect dancers. A city where art is ever so present, in every coffee shop, at every corner of the street. A city that plays hosts to the most hip of the cafes, to the most creative of the crafters, to the flock of nerds on that particular weekend and accepts all gracefully. A city with the world's first starbucks, dancing porcupine, a garden made out of glass, the leaping salmons, the grave of a Kungfu legend, and the the forever present glaciered peak of Mt. Rainier in the skyline. The city of serendipity.Recommended for:
