Seattle Culture

Seattle has a big reputation despite being a small city. It has around 5630,000 residents, according to the latest U.S. Census, with an even split of female and male residents. But unlike major metropolises like Los Angeles and New York City, Seattle isn’t as ethnically diverse. In fact, 70 percent of the population identifies itself as White, while roughly 8 percent identifies itself as Black or African American and 13 percent as Asian, including Indian, Chinese, Filipino,

Vietnamese, Japanese and Korean. Nevertheless, you’ll still find great ethnic cuisine in the city, as well as fresh seafood, of course. And the neighborhoods are very family-friendly. Indeed, almost half of all households are made up of families and nearly 20 percent have individuals under the age of 18 in them. So if you’re a family traveling to Seattle, expect to find a steady stream of activities and events that will keep both you and the kids occupied.

Seattle Shopping

Shoppers will revel in delight over the mix of stores they’ll find in Seattle. Big spenders will want to venture downtown, to Seneca and 4th Avenue, where you’ll find famous fashion boutiques like Betsy Johnson and other notable names like Nordstrom and Gap. The area is often compared to New York’s Fifth Ave, though if you’re tired of dropping the big bucks on these trendy shops, take a break over on Phil Hill’s Madison Avenue (you can choose between one of three Starbucks on the same corner).

If you want a more leisurely shopping experience, with big-name brands as well as retro or vintage offerings, try Fremont Shopping District. But for vivid colors and a true cultural experience, head to the “ID” (or International District), which includes eight city blocks of ethnic restaurants and shops just south of Pioneer Square. There are also random treasures to be found in the Pioneer Square shopping district, such as African safari masks and imported rugs. You’ll also find the first Starbucks that opened its doors, so be sure to at least pause if you hold a special spot in your heart for caffeine. For those on a budget, especially backpackers looking for deals, make your way to the University District for bargain deals and independent boutiques.
