If you don’t mind rain and love the smell of coffee, then Seattle’s waiting for you! Even though it’s the birthplace of Starbucks, you'll be surprised at the variety of coffee shops and Seattle has some of the best restaurants in the country. While it does rain a lot, it’s not a constant downpour, and in fact, NYC has more annual rainfall than this green-saturated metropolis.
Seattle is a liberal city and accepts pretty much every life-style ever invented, so their pride festival is a big deal. What else would expect from a city essentially founded with the hippy playbook?
If you’re going to move there, make sure you have a decent tent, hiking boots and plenty of flannel. Seattleites are crazy for biking and hiking the gorgeous Pacific Northwest.
