Seattle is a lovely contrast between city and countryside. It’s a city of skyscrapers surrounded by pine forests and two mountain ranges but also boasts beautiful beaches.
More than 4 million people live in the city and its surrounding areas. That’s not surprising since it’s home to two of the world’s biggest companies—Amazon and Microsoft. It’s also the birthplace of Starbucks.
The grunge music scene began in Seattle, and not surprisingly, the city is also big on outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking.
The temperature here is moderate, but there tends to be several months’ worth of rainy drizzle on an annual basis.
Lake Washington splits the west and east sides of Seattle. The former contains the skyscrapers, busy sidewalks, and the city. The east is more suburban and spacious and consists of areas such as Bellevue and Redmond. Families and others who enjoy peace and quiet will like living in Broadview, Lake City, or Mercer Island.
If you’re moving here, make sure you won’t be “Sleepless in Seattle” by ensuring you buy a comfortable mattress that’s just right for you. Of course, if you’ve already been here for some time, you might need to think about updating your existing mattress.
