SEATTLE AREA TOUR # 1 : SEATTLE METRO AREA
Seattle is a major metropolitan destination located on the beautiful Puget Sound. Professional basketball, baseball and football teams play here. Three major universities are located in Seattle. The Pacific Northwest Ballet Company, Seattle Symphony and several playhouses perform year round. Every night, a diversity of entertainment can be found in the city's clubs, bars and seasonal venues.
Outdoor recreation is a way of life in Seattle. The city maintains 6,100 acres of parkland where residents bike, jog, in-line skate and hike. Two major lakes offer plenty of opportunity to boat and play on the beach. The Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, both visible from Seattle, are just a drive away. And daily ferries carry passengers across the Sound to nearby island and peninsula destinations.
