And whether your own musical tastes take on a grunge overtone, or you prefer something a bit more up-market, Seattle has something to offer all tastes and is the birthplace of grunge everywhere. Nirvana, Pearl Jam and a host of other rock greats played their earliest gigs in the Seattle area.

With its thriving nightlife and music scene, Seattle is also home to large companies such as Boeing, Amazon and Microsoft in and around the metropolitan areas which include the smaller cities of Bellevue, Lynnwood.
