Set between Puget Sound and Lake Washington and overlooking Elliot Bay is the beautiful city of Seattle, WA. Seattle is a city that blends the uniqueness of the Pacific Northwest with a cosmopolitan city, all with the beautiful backdrop of the Mount Rainier and the Cascade Range. Owing to the evergreen trees surrounding Seattle on the Cascade and Olympic Mountains, Seattle is known as the “Emerald City”.
