Whether you are currently located in this captivating area or planning to relocate here, the Pacific Northwest becomes lodged in the hearts of those who are lucky enough to live here.

Some areas have the typical Pacific Northwest rainfall, while others sit in the rain shadow of the mountains and enjoy more moderate climates. Regardless of your location, you can enjoy outdoor activities and a healthy, successful lifestyle in the communities of northwest Washington.

King County is home to Seattle, one of the largest, most popular, and well-known cities in Washington.
