The Emerald City.
The “Emerald City” has grown rapidly not only as the U.S. birthplace of gourmet coffee, but also as a heartland of high-technology industries. Key factors to Seattle’s growth are a skilled workforce, education, medical care and research, and access to international and domestic markets. With its isthmus-like geography, Seattle is bordered by water to the east and west. Most suburbs lie in North Seattle, South Seattle, on the Eastside across Lake Washington. Full of waterways and sprawling suburbs in three directions, most of Seattle's commuter transportation is by car. The major highway 5 runs north to south, with 90 and 520 running east to west, crossing Lake Washington on some of the world's largest floating bridges. Seattle also has many bus lines as well as ferries carrying both passengers and cars across waterways all over town.
