Natural features

Facing the ocean in Seattle

Downtown Seattle spills out onto the edge of the mighty Puget Sound, which carves its way into America's coastal mountains from the icy waters of the North Pacific Ocean. The horizon here is dominated by both the soaring skyscrapers of the city and the hulking domes of great peaks in the Cascade Range, Mount Baker, and the Olympic National Park. Any of these wilderness areas can easily be reached from Downtown, meaning jaunts to glacier fields and bear-spotted woods, to whale-inhabited waters and salt-washed beaches, are all possibilities.
