Seattle has been called one of the nation’s most beautiful cities. With a temperate climate and geographically nestled within two mountain ranges, Seattle offers residents a multitude of diverse year around recreational activities, unique cultural experiences, and professional sporting events.
Seattle, Washington is known as an exceptional place to work and live. Major international corporations such as Microsoft, Boeing, and Starbucks were pioneers here in the Pacific Northwest. This geographic area is now considered part of a growing technology hub. The greater Seattle area also offers residents a full range of recreational opportunities such as salt and fresh water beaches, a plethora of wineries and microbreweries, symphony, opera, ballet, art galleries and many winter family-centered activities.
The Seattle weather is temperate with summer temperatures usually ranging from 75 to 80 degrees and the winter temperatures between 30 to 50 degrees. Since the amount of rain in the Seattle area can be misconstrued, the weather bureau has recently shown that the Seattle area only receives 34.3” of precipitation annually which is much lower than the major metropolitan areas of New York, Atlanta, and Houston. Snow is sporadic and not commonplace in the metropolitan Seattle area except in the nearby mountain ranges where ski resort activities are available during the majority of the winter months.
