Quality of Life

Nestled between two mountain ranges along picturesque Puget Sound, King County is one of the best places to live in the world, especially for those who love the outdoors.

Though the Seattle area has a reputation for rain, we actually receive less rain than Boston, New York, and Chicago. This region also offers wonderful work/life balance, with more arts per capita than anywhere else in the country, hundreds of miles of walking, hiking, and biking trails, plus easy access to winter skiing and summer recreation. No wonder this is a place where so many workers choose to put down roots and raise a family.
