The city is situated on an isthmus between Puget Sound and Lake Washington. A major gateway for trade with Asia, Seattle is the fourth-largest port in North America in terms of container handling as of 2015. Named by Kiplinger's as one of the "10 Best Cities for the Next Decade," the Seattle metropolitan region is a great place to live, visit and do business.
