Places and Activities in the Greater Seattle Area
Adventure is a given in the Puget region. Recreation is a huge draw for people moving to the area and for those already here. In the summer, the mountains call for endless hikes with the Cascade Mountains, Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier all close enough for a day trip. In the winter, skiing and snowboarding are nearby at Crystal Mountain, Stevens Pass, Summit at Snoqualmie, and Mount Baker, or you can choose to cozy up in a wood cabin in the mountains for a serene getaway. If you love the water, Seattle, Washington is the ideal location for building your new construction home. Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish are great spots for kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, swimming, and wakeboarding. The Puget Sound is a unique inlet of the Pacific Ocean offering boaters a protected area to explore that is completely unique to the area. The San Juan Islands to the north are popular for a weekend getaway.
The Seattle area is also known for its impressive dining scene, with fresh seafood and some of the best sushi out of Japan. Coffee is inherent to the Seattle culture and even though it is the birthplace of Starbucks there are also many independent roasteries and coffee and tea bars throughout the region. Craft breweries abound as well, and Woodinville wine county is a destination on the eastside. If sports are more your speed, Seattle fans love their teams, including the beloved Seahawks and Sounders, the Seattle Storm, Seattle Mariners, and the newest addition, the hockey team, Seattle Kraken.
