Sandwiched between the frosted peak of Mount Rainier and the waters of the Puget Sound, Seattle is a city of contrasts. Birthplace of giants such as Amazon, Starbucks and Microsoft, it is also a stronghold of independent businesses, where local produce is king and quirky bookstores, artisan coffee shops and microbreweries abound. Live like a local to appreciate Seattle’s beguiling character.
Wander the lanes of Pike Place Market to understand the city’s love of everything culinary, and feast on cutting edge cuisine in one of many superb restaurants. Hang out in craft brew bars and discover the latest flavors to come out of this trend-setting city. Soak in the views over the Puget Sound while dining on seafood plucked from its waters that day.
