Seattle Map

Seattle is the largest city in the Northwestern USA, and the 23rd largest city in the whole of the country. But that is only taking into account the city proper, which has a medium-sized population of 608,000. But if we take into account the whole metropolitan area including the suburbs of Seattle, then it is actually the 15th largest metro area in the country, with a total of 3.4 million people.

Seattle lies near the Canadian-American land border, a mere 183 km away. There is a busy land crossing for cars that takes you from Seattle to the Vancouver area. The city is located on an isthmus between Puget Sound (an extension of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington.

Like much of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle has a Marine west coast climate with mild dry (well, sometimes dry) summers, and mild-to-cool wet winters. It is a city that is plagued by clouds and overcast skies, and drizzly rains for much of the year, particularly from October to May.

Here is a detailed Seattle map showing all the main roads and highways.
