Downtown | Magnolia | Queen Anne | Capitol Hill

Known for iconic Pike Place Market, ferry rides, and the Space Needle, the city of Seattle is in the midst of another boom that’s made it the fastest-growing among the top 50 U.S. cities. As industry giants Amazon, Zillow, and Starbucks reshape downtown with new developments the area’s unemployment rate fell to 4.4 percent in April, the lowest since May 2008.

Full of award winning restaurants, a growing night life, and entertainment of all types, there is plenty to accommodate the influx of residents wanting a piece of Seattle. For many who live here, however, the blue skies, abundant water and picturesque mountain ranges are what make this city so appealing.
