Beat the summer heat by booking cheap airfares to Seattle, the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest! Situated between Lake Washington and the Pacific Ocean, Seattle is blessed with a beautiful landscape and has become famous for being one of the greenest cities in America.
The Emerald City, as it’s often called, is also home to some legendary musicians, most notably Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana. Nirvana was famous for popularizing Grunge music and the Grunge movement in Seattle during the early ‘90s, something that can still be found in the city today.
Not only is the city incredibly green, with a great musical history, but there are plenty of events happening from late spring through early summer to keep your interest on your visit to Seattle.
