HBL Guide: Seattle

Friday, 3 June 2011


One of the US’s most literate cities, this seaport - named after a tribal chief - is the birthplace of Starbucks, Hendrix and grunge.


Situated on the banks of Washington's Puget Sound, Seattle sprawls over 142 square miles and is made up of hilly neighbourhoods filled with perfectly merchandised lifestyle stores, speciality boutiques and funky gastropubs. WGSN-homebuildlife recommends exploring Fremont, a truly interesting neighbourhood where you’ll find bookstores, boutiques and designer/owner studios/selling spaces.
