More About Seattle
Founded in the mid-19th century, Seattle is today a world-class center for technology, international commerce, finance, aviation and, of course, coffee. With a metro-area population of 3.3 million, it is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest.
Despite its far north location, Seattle is blessed with a climate that is one of the mildest in the U.S. In the summer, highs average in the high 70s while winter highs tend to hover in the mid-40s with the mercury only occasionally dropping below freezing. Although Seattle has a national reputation for rain, it actually gets less precipitation than many other major cities, including New York City, Atlanta and Houston. It does, however, suffer from frequent cloudiness and drizzle, the skies are dark and gloomy virtually half the year.
Although once a town heavily dependent on the lumber industry, Seattle is today a hub of cutting edge technology. The city and its suburbs play host to many leading high-tech companies, including Microsoft, Amazon.com, T-Mobile USA and RealNetworks. Although Boeing recently moved its corporate headquarters to Chicago, Ill., the company is still a huge presence in the area with major manufacturing facilities dotted all over the metropolitan area. Seattle is also home to such financial giants as Washington Mutual (now Chase) and Safeco, as well as the Nordstrom retail chain.
Seattle is a major cultural center, as well as the home to "grunge" rock. The century-old Seattle Symphony Orchestra is among the world's most recorded, while the Seattle Opera and Pacific Northwest Ballet also enjoy international reputations. Seattle's mild climate allows for yearround outdoor recreation, including walking, cycling, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, rock climbing, motor boating, sailing, team sports and swimming. The city has many beautiful parts to enjoy, and the Cascade Mountains with its kayaking, rafting, skiing and hiking attractions is just an hour away by car.
Seattle is a world-class city still on the rise. If this is where you call home, why not make the most of what your city has to offer? Start a new, better life with career training from Everest.
