Seattle: A Great Place to Live...

Whether you are a theater lover, art aficionado, a jazz enthusiast or a jock, Seattle is a great place to live. You will find activities and arenas to satisfy all of your interests.

Surrounded by lakes, rivers, the Puget Sound, and mountain ranges, Seattle is an outdoor enthusiasts' dream. There are plenty of sunny skies from June to late October, and in the winter, the skiers' and snowboarders' mantra is "when it's raining in the city, it's snowing in the mountains." Our residents participate in organized team sports and pick-up games across the city all year round.

Home to world class theaters, museums and restaurants, there is always something to do at any time of the day or night. 

Seattle and the neighboring area offer many employment opportunities for the spouses and partners of residents. Boeing, Starbucks, Nordstrom and Microsoft are only a few of the many world-renowned companies that are locally based.
