Seattle ranks prominently on most top ten lists of splendid U.S. vacation destinations. The city is in a superb location, surrounded by mountains (the Cascades to the east and the Olympics to the west), evergreen forests, salt water (Puget Sound, an arm of the Pacific), and fresh water (Lake Washington). Sight-seeing and recreational opportunities abound. Originally built on seven hills (one has since been leveled), the city has a lively waterfront and a multitude of family-friendly attractions. Yes, the mild climate is also moist (bring rain gear), but the locals have adapted to the inclement weather (which many residents say is more like a steady drizzle than real downpours).
