EXPLORE SEATTLE
Located on the coast of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle and the Puget Sound region are home to well over three and a half million people. Seattle is world renowned for its aerospace, computer software, on-line retail and biotech industries. Many prestigious companies—such as Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks, Amazon and Costco have headquarters based in Seattle. It is also home to major medical centers and the University of Washington—one of the top research universities in the world.
Many cultural festivals and events take place throughout the year, ranging from Broadway musicals and theatrical performances to international film festivals and major art exhibits. The famous and iconic Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Seattle Art Museum, Museum of Flight and the first-ever Starbucks coffee house are among the treasures located in Seattle.
Enjoy exploring the city’s beautiful parks, spectacular waterfront, and unique neighborhoods filled with one-of-a-kind boutiques, open-air markets and lively sidewalk cafes. Seattle is also perfect for those who love outdoor activities, including hiking, skiing, bicycling and sailing.
It is a great place to live, study and call home.

WASHINGTON STATE
ONE MOMENT YOU CAN BE HIKING at Mount Rainier and the next downhill skiing in the Cascades. Hop on a ferryboat to explore the small towns and islands nearby, or take a drive to see the magical lighting festival in Leavenworth.
Many activities or sightseeing trips are a short drive away with landscapes drastically shifting from one corner of the state to the other.
Washington State became the nation’s 42 nd state in 1889. With our many national parks and lush green forests, Washington is affectionately known as the “Evergreen State”.
Our state capitol is located in Olympia. It is well worth the visit to see the famous capitol building modeled after the architectural design of our nation’s capitol in Washington D.C.
In addition to leading the future in aerospace, computer software and biotech industries, Washington is a well-known agricultural state. The Washington apple is a top export and famous around the world.
By the way, our region is also a favorite for Hollywood films. Smile! You could be an extra in the next film cast around the corner!
