With hiking trails right outside the city’s limit and a mere 2-hour drive to all three of Washington’s National Parks, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the beautiful nature of the PNW. For those relocating with loved ones, you can move confidently knowing Seattle consistently ranks as one of the top 10 best cities in the country for jobs and has a strong market for career opportunities—especially tech. Outside of work and outdoor fun, Seattle is also home to an incredible food scene, beautiful scenery, countless coffee shops, and yes, its infamous rainy weather (which is balanced out by its phenomenal summers).
