Seattle


Seattle has the cosmopolitan outlook of a port city with its strong civic, cultural and personal relationships abroad. Both Residents and Visitors are attracted to the beautiful scenery with views of lakes, Puget Sound and mountain ranges.  Seattle is home to a diverse culture and celebrates its progressive values. People from all backgrounds are welcome here. Seattle has been ranked as one of the best U.S. cities in which to locate a business. A number of high profile companies have helped place Seattle on the map and no doubt also helped to attract people from diverse backgrounds to the area. Headquartered in Seattle, Boeing, Microsoft, and Amazon.com have shown that hi-tech mixes well with national forest.  With these major employers investing in Seattle the workforce is strong. It is open to new influences and is a landing site for those seeking adventure, or starting a new life. Seattle is the 18th Largest City in the United States. Despite a cosmopolitan outlook, Seattle remains unpretentious, and even low-key. Folks who wear jeans to work, and prefer backpacks to briefcases are also those who appreciate the finer things in life, and are open to new influences in food and art.
