Seattle has plenty to offer any would-be resident. From world-class dining to sporting events, great concerts to scenic views, Seattle is truly a highly desirable destination for all ages. Here’s a look at some of the leading reasons to move to the Emerald City.
See the sights
Seattle is a coastal city, nestled between the Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains, and offers majestic views of pristine, natural scenes as part of daily living. The city offers its own features as well that provide balance and contrast to the natural sights. Home to the Space Needle on land and the nation’s largest passenger ferry system at sea, Seattle’s notable sights perfectly complement and enhance the surrounding natural beauty.
Farm fresh food and fish
Foodies can delight in the fresh Pacific seafood caught daily and brought to Seattle’s Pike Place Market. The market ranks annually as the city’s top destination for tourists, and boasts more than 200 shops and stands offering fresh produce and farm-fresh items year-round. In addition to high quality products, the market also hosts cooking classes, restaurants and craft vendors daily.
In addition to being the home of the grunge rock movement of the 1980s and ‘90s, Seattle and the Northwest host numerous annual large concerts, festivals and artists that appeal to a broad variety of tastes and interests. The city is also home to countless bookstores and a hip nightlife scene, providing residents and visitors with ample opportunities to dive into whatever piques their interests.
Athletics and activities
Seattle is also home to an active professional sports pantheon, with professional and semi-pro teams in football, baseball, hockey, soccer and lacrosse calling the Emerald City their home. The city is also a very popular home for bikers, with many bicycle clubs, annual events, and special brewery and destination rides. Seattle is also home to one of the leading up and coming sports phenomenons, a roller derby team, the Rat City Rollergirls, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2014.
Beyond all the amenities and activities, Seattle has enjoyed several years of strong job stability and growth, making it one of the most appealing cities in the country for job seekers. In addition, the city enjoys very affordable housing among other major metropolitan areas, making it very accessible for workers in all trades and professions.
