Don't forget the Pike Place Market! That's the first place most of my friends want me to take them. And Grey's Anatomy is also set in Seattle, adding to the city's sex appeal. Finally, if you're mentioning businesses, you don't want to forget Boeing - even though they seem to be abandoning their home town!

Tully's coffee was also founded in Seattle and a well known staple around these parts. Seattle definitely brought the upscale coffee bars to life and to the mainstream. Can't forget Seattle's Best! Above all, I think Seattle is best known for its scenery, no not technologigal scenery like Amazon.com or RealNetworks, but outdoor scenery like Mount Rainier, Lake Washington, Elliot Bay, Olympic Mountains, and the Cascade Range.
