Discover the top photo spots in Seattle
Seattle is built on hills and divided by rivers, a bay, a ship canal and lakes. Its uniqueness lies in its amazingly scenic location along the shores of Elliott Bay with the island studded Puget Sound to the west and Lake Washington to the East. Beyond the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains catch the first rays of morning light and the Cascade Mountains, dominated by the massive glacier-covered Mt Rainier, catch the last rays of light at sunset.
Seattle is one of the centers of the tech world. Cell phone coverage, WiFi and all other connection methods are found here. Visitors are advised to plan for any and all types of weather when they visit Seattle. Raincoats for yourself and umbrellas for the camera are a good idea. The best way to get around the city is by public transit. Seattle has a real hodgepodge of transports ranging from the new Link light rail system to electric buses, trolleys and a short monorail built in 1962. To negotiate the complicated system, download the Metro app which will help you find the most efficient transport to where you want to go. (In the downtown core area, consider walking to your destination). Locations outside of the core area may be easiest to access by cabs or other ride sharing services.
