Happy hump day Seattle! If you need a little pick-me-up to get you through the rest of the week, we sure have that for you. Seattle just ranked as one of the best cities in the US. So give yourself a pat on the back and let’s check out just why Conde Nast Traveler thinks we’re so great.

This ranking is even more exciting because it’s actually Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice. So people are actually showing our city love versus a third-party group compiling numbers and search queries.

As you can see, Seattle took 10th place alongside some other great cities. Some of the notes by Conde Nast include mentions of our “close-knit relationship with the water”, “seafood towers at high-end restaurants”, and even hot tub boats. Of course, there’s also mention of local tech giant Amazon.

A new spot in a new ranking is yet another reason to love our city. It’s also even more proof that the Emerald City is carving itself to be the best in the Pacific Northwest.
