Among many things, the American city of Seattle is known for Pike Place Market; the coffee (lots of coffee and cafés!); her sports teams: Seahawks, Mariners, Sounders; and the home city headquarters for Amazon, Microsoft, and Starbucks. A visit to Waterfront Park confirms another important and defining aspect of Seattle: her proximity to mountains and water. A number of Ferries go up and down and across Puget Sound, serving various communities in neighbouring San Juan Islands and the Olympic Peninsula; some boats cross the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Victoria, Canada.
