What Bert Has To Say About Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue Metro Area

Seattle is a lively and cosmopolitan city beautifully set in a dramatic backdrop of water, forests and mountains. The main downtown area sits on a narrow, hilly strip of land between Puget Sound to the west and Lake Washington to the east. Modern skyscrapers rise on high hills in the city center, with residential units lining the lower areas along the water and north of downtown.
