Seattle is the most beautiful city in the Pacific Northwest. It is a popular spot for fine dining, premiere hotel and resort accommodations and a myriad of entertainment selections. Whether you’re going to catch a Mariners or Seahawks game, or perhaps in town for one of the many concerts or stage shows that are offered, you’ll find plenty to do in Seattle. Another reason why Seattle is so popular is that it is a gateway to a variety of other activities and hot spots outside of the city.
