Seattle is a great place to visit, filled with art and sculptures on the streets, excellent restaurants and helpful folks who are happy to point out how to get to your destination. Seattle has metropolitan staff on the street in the spring, summer and fall, keeping the streets clean and offering directions to anyone who asks.
