The natural beauty of Seattle is one of the biggest draws for residents. Seattle gets less rain annually than Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Miami and many other major metro areas. For many, living in Seattle has as much to do with what’s outside the city proper as what’s inside.
Less than an hour from downtown, residents escape for the day or weekend to wineries, ski resorts, hiking trails and sprawling parks. The scenery and proximity to nature, perhaps, contribute to Seattle’s inherent attitude: one of calm and patience. U.S. News & World Report ranks Seattle as the 9th Best Place to Live in the country.
