Seattle borders the Puget Sound in Washington State, 13 miles south of the United States-Canadian border.  The Olympic and Kitsap peninsulas separate the city from the Pacific Ocean.  Hundreds of parks, lush and green from the region's notoriously wet climate, have given Seattle the nickname of the "Emerald City."  The sound is home to the largest number of houseboats in America.  But with a population of over 600,000, Seattle is also a bustling metropolitan center.  The famous Space Needle rises above the cityscape.  Seattle has been home to multiple pop culture icons, including the grunge music movement of the early 1990s, the popular Frasier television show, and the Starbucks coffee franchise.
