Five miles south of downtown Seattle lies Boeing Field. Home to the Boeing Company and the Museum of Flight. Check out the ex-British Airways Concorde. The city of Seattle itself is surrounded by water, forests and mountains which makes it great to explore the outdoors. Both Microsoft and Amazon and headquarter here, along with the world's first Starbucks.
