Seattle Apartments for Rent
When looking for apartments for rent in Seattle, WA, many people think about great coffee, “grunge” music, the Space Needle or sometimes just rain. But there’s so much more to the Seattle scene, including many Seattle apartments for rent.
Seattle has received many impressive accolades. It’s been ranked the most literate of America’s sixty-nine largest cities in 2005, 2006 and 2008. Additionally, survey data indicates that Seattle is the most educated city in the U.S., with 52.5% of residents aged 25+ holding a bachelor’s degree. Back in 2005, Seattle was named the fittest city in the U.S. by Men’s Fitness magazine.
There are people who wouldn’t consider looking for apartments for rent in Seattle because they mistakenly think it rains every day there. Actually, Seattle weather is sunny about six months out of the year. In fact, Seattle isn’t even one of the Top 10 Rainiest Cities in the U.S. (the top 10 are all in Gulf Coast states).
Seattle’s mild, temperate marine climate also allows year-round outdoor recreation. Many residents also hike and ski in the nearby Cascade or Olympic Mountains and kayak or sail in the waters of Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Strait of Georgia.
