Ask any Seattleite where to get the best cup of espresso, and you'll receive an enthusiastic answer. Ask if it's true that it rains less in Seattle than it does in New York, Atlanta, Boston and even Miami, and you may receive an evasive reply. That's because it's true, and Seattleites are very protective of their little piece of paradise. After all, it's well known that the bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle, not somewhere down in the southern California. Seattle is a lovely place to come for a convention or meeting - if you have the discipline to stay indoors.
A scenic blend of mountains, the subtle hues of evergreens, and flowered hillsides, the city is virtually ringed by water with views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains and the indomitable 14,410- foot Mt. Rainier. Ferries cross the Puget Sound to Bainbridge and Vashon Islands and beyond to the San Juan's.
Because two mountains ranges flank the city, the climate is temperate year-round, and gardens thrive even in the mid-winter. Rain is usually a gentle mist that freshens the air and keeps the landscape naturally green and lush.
A booming waterfront is testament to Seattle's maritime connection. Attractions include Pike Place Market, the nation's oldest working farmers market since 1907; Odyssey, the Maritime Discovery Center; The Seattle Aquarium; harbor tours; and simply strolling amidst fresh salt breezes and smells of crab and cracked sourdough bread, with views of ferry and freighter traffic on Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains.
