The Top Ten
1 Seattle Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

I went there in December 2018 and November 2019, and I loved it. The skies and weather were beautiful at that time of the year, plus it gets dark early, which I love.

A very popular city. It has many coffee shops, friendly people, stores, and even great weather. There is even a baseball stadium (Safeco Field) and a football/soccer stadium (CenturyLink Field. )

Nice city, a lot to do, good jobs, quirky vibes. But expensive and weird people

2 Issaquah

Issaquah is one of the most beautiful cities in Washington and maybe even the Northwest. The people there are nice, there are great stores and restaurants, and it's a great city for hiking.

3 Bellevue

It sounds like a great place to visit and maybe even live. There are friendly people, tons of stores, lots of parks, and great restaurants. The hotels there sound pretty good as well.

4 Bellingham

I was looking up Bellingham and it looks very nice and has many stores. There are a lot of amenities and restaurants that are very popular there. The hotels sound nice as well.

5 Spokane

Spokane is a friendly city and its beauty is highlighted by the beautiful Spokane river which flows through its center. The Riverfront Park is a delightful place in which to walk and to enjoy its numerous community activities, its waterfalls, and its historic Carousel. The city also has many fine restaurants and stores.

The second largest city in Washington. There are great places to shop in Spokane and has great restaurants. The only bad thing about Spokane is the crime, but don't worry about that, its still a great place to live and visit.

6 Vancouver

Right near Portland is this city. It is not as rainy as Seattle and can be warm. Situated on the Columbia river you some times spot migrating salmon here and even rattlesnakes. If you want to see the ocean, it is not even a far drive and unlike Seattle, it will be open ocean (not like puget sound).

No not Vancouver, British Columbia, this is the Vancouver that is part of the Portland Metro Area. Vancouver, WA is a very nice city with beautiful parks and restaurants.

It's closer to Portland then Seattle, so it resonates with Portland culture
