Seattle, State Washington

One of America`s most attractive cities, Seattle lies nestled between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, with the spectacular peaks of the Cascade Mountains and Mount Rainier in the background. Green is the prevalent colour in Seattle and it is not called The Emerald City without reason. The cities growth since the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897 has been phenominal and today Seattle is best known for the business giants Microsoft, Amazon and Boeing. The famous guitarist Jimi Hendrix was born in Seattle, the band Nirvana was founded here, and in 1971, Starbucks opened the very first of its coffee shops in the world. Today there are 11,000 shops worldwide.
