Seattle is the 23rd most-populated city in the United States and the largest city in the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle is often known as the birthplace of grunge music (or the Seattle Sound) with such bands as Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden originating in the city.
While Seattle is possibly most famous for its rain, the Space Needle, grunge music, and Starbucks, there are numerous other reasons why Seattle has become a great place to rent an apartment or rental house.
Seattle is known for its outdoor recreational activities. From hiking, to biking and white-water rafting, Seattle has a great deal to offer the outdoor-loving renter.
However, when renters need an alternate mode of transportation, Seattle boasts an extensive public transportation system in addition to a monorail line. Traveling to Seattle or from Seattle is facilitated by the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (aka the Sea-Tac Airport) located in nearby SeaTac.
