Sleepless in Seattle does not apply this week, as the town readies for their second Super Bowl appearance. If you live in Seattle, or have had the pleasure to visit, I think you’ll agree it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the United States.

Seattle is the center of King County with a population of only 600K, but the metropolitan area is home to over 4 million. The city is situated between Pugent Sound and Lake Washington, and is 100 miles south of the Canadian border. The Olympic mountains lie to the west and the Cascade Range to the east. The area is very easy on the eyes.

Starbucks, Amazon.com, Nordstrom, Costco, and Microsoft are just a few of the major organizations with headquarters in Seattle. Seattle had been the long time home of Boeing (they make planes), before Boeing moved to Chicago in 2001. Boeing still has two major manufacturing plants where planes are assembled.

Seattle is infamously known for its rain. However, you might be surprised to hear that New York, Washington D.C., and Boston actually receive more precipitation than Seattle annually. If you’re looking for a sunny Seattle, your best chance is from May to September. During the remaining months, you can expect 85% of the days to be cloudy.
