Washington State's fast-growing capital city, Seattle, might have registered on our collective radars because of tech giants Amazon and Microsoft, but there's much more to this Pacific Northwestern city than business. With numerous neighbourhoods offering an eclectic mix of cultures, colours and cuisine, soulful Seattle isn't just rapidly growing in population, but also in popularity.If the buzz of city life gets too much, Seattle also has escapism sorted. Nicknamed the 'Emerald City' due to it's numerous (nearly 500) parks and green spaces, there's no shortage of places to kick back with a picnic and a local craft beer.
Alternatively, take a ferry, boat or kayak out onto Lake Washington or Puget Sound and experience the tranquillity of life on Seattle's surrounding waterways. Since Puget Sound is also one of the best places in the state to spot orcas (otherwise known as killer whales) we can recommend various trips which depart from in or just outside the city centre.
