Seattle, Washington | Community Overview
A City Set In A Backdrop of Water, Forests and Mountains
Seattle is a lively and cosmopolitan city beautifully set in a dramatic backdrop of water, forests and mountains. The main downtown area sits on a narrow, hilly strip of land between Puget Sound to the west and Lake Washington to the east. Modern skyscrapers rise on high hills in the city center, with residential units lining the lower areas along the water and north of downtown.
The Market is home to more than 200 vendors, farmers, and specialty shops. It’s Seattle’s No. 1 tourist destination. And as a resident you learn to navigate the crowds, because it is the place for produce and cheap bouquets of farm fresh flowers.
