The Seattle Space Needle noticeably defines the Seattle skyline. Enjoy a meal at Sky City, the restaurant at the top that revolves 360 degrees while you dine.

World famous Pike Place Market is a must for visitors and hosts the original store of corporate coffee giant Starbucks. Born in 1907, Seattles Pike Place Market is the granddaddy of farmers markets. Today, its a major tourist attraction with 200 businesses operating year round, 190 craftspeople and 120 farmer booths plus street performers and musicians. Flowers by the bucketful, flying fish, fresh pastries and fruit, handmade cheeses, local honey, wine, an assortment of restaurants, import goods, antiques, collectibles and lots of surprises are around every corner.

Feed the seagulls at the statue of Ivar Haglund, stroll by the fountains on the wooden piers of Waterfront Park, admire the view or shop for souvenirs. There is a bustling collection of attractions, restaurants and shopping, as well as starting points for ferries, cruise ships.

See more than 1000 animals of 400 different species, from elephants and gorillas to piranhas and penguins, in naturalistic exhibits at the Woodland Park Zoo.

Seattle has a mild climate that is usually classified as Marine west coast. However, due to its wet winter dry summer pattern, it shows some characteristics of a Mediterranean climate and is sometimes classified this way.

This is a place that balances big business and a healthy environment, sports and the arts, family and single living, individualism and a deep sense of community pride. With quality schooling, affordable health care and a low incidence of crime, it offers a life that balances favourable working and living conditions. But remember, nothing beats seeing the real thing on a visit to Seattle.
