Seattle, the Emerald City
Seattle, the Emerald City, is a bustling urban hub, surrounded by the magnificent beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Seattle’s rich cultural history includes contributions from the Native peoples as well as the Scandinavian, African American, Asian, and Latino people who were later drawn by the city’s booming economy.
Today, Seattle is the home of innovation where companies like Boeing, Microsoft, and Amazon got their start. As one of the fastest growing cities in America, Seattle still attracts transplants and immigrants from all over the world.
The Washington State Convention Center is located in the heart of downtown, just steps from everything Seattle has to offer. In minutes you can walk to the iconic Pike Place Market, where you can browse the stalls for specialty foods, jewelry, and unique souvenirs. You’ll also be within easy walking distance of the Seattle Art Museum, Aquarium, and several theaters, cinemas, and music venues. Downtown Seattle offers world-class shopping, as well as a broad spectrum of eclectic boutiques in the nearby Capitol Hill neighborhood.
