Seattle, located in Washington state, sits in the beautiful Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Some of the largest companies in the world are either headquartered or have offices in the Seattle area, including Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and Starbucks.
In addition to the area's thriving economy, which attracts people from all over the U.S., the cultural and recreational opportunities are similarly world class.
