Now that we’ve exhausted all our favourite Seattle stereotypes, it’s time to branch out and get to know this city of contrasts for all it’s worth.
Seattle is the perfect concoction: It’s an innovative, tech-forward city that grew some of the biggest businesses that shape our lives today (think Amazon, Microsoft, Boeing).
