Seattle is located in the state of Washington. The population of the city is over 4 million people and the city is supposed to be the largest city of the Pacific Northwest area. For some reason the city is nicknamed the Emerald City. The city got this informal status as the area is hemmed about by evergreen forests. And of course the area has a lot of rain. Just remember about it before you start your travel.
For many people Seattle has become known due to its music. Especially due to its famous grunge bands. The most popular grunge band was Nirvana and its late front man Kurt Cobain.
