Washington's largest city with an estimated population of 536,600 (as of 1997), Seattle was named after Chief Sealth of the Suquamish Tribe.

Nicknamed the Emerald City, it features a variety of unique neighborhoods: Ballard, Capital Hill, Downtown (includes Belltown, Chinatown/International District, Pioneer Square, and Seattle Center), Fremont, Magnolia, North Seattle, Queen Anne, U-District, and West Seattle (includes Alki and Fauntleroy). Pioneer Square was the location of the original Skid Row, created by loggers skidding logs down Seattle's seven hills to the waterfront logging mills.

Despite a severe fire in May 1889, Seattle revived due to its prime location. A major shipping port, it served an important role for Klondike Gold Rush prospectors. Its annual Seafair festival has been held for 50 years. Worldwide events in its history include the 1962 World's Fair, and the 1990 Goodwill Games. Now Seattle is best known for its coffee-loving attitude, diverse music, and appreciation for the outdoors.
