We ski in the winter and hike in the summer, and boat anytime we can ! We are second only to Hong Kong for boats per capita.
We abound with wonderful Art galleries, Our Seattle Art museum has two locations, one in the heart of Downtown with great permanent collections and awe inspiring traveling shows. The second site has a breathtaking Asian Gallery with a fantastic collection. The art community is well represented by hundreds of galleries that show everything from photography
to textiles to fine art.
