Ok, not to toot our own horn, but frankly – our city is better than your city. Lots of folks will talk about the miracles of Amazon, Boeing’s prosperous pipeline, or Starbucks and their cafe culture. Really it just comes down to the fact that we are extra nerdy, like to read and love our farmers markets. That is the reason why Seattle is better than your city!
Reasons Why Seattle Is Better Than Your City
- Top City for Hipsters: Yes working at the DivaHQ on Capitol Hill we often see many hipsters going to Captain Blacks in their skinny jeans and long beards. But hipsters also do fun things – like create whacked art installations that many of us love and adore.
- Top City for Working Woman: That’s right you want to be a working lady in this city? Well expect to make more than your sisters in other cities. According to Forbes Magazine Seattle is ranked in the top ten salaries paid to women.

Love our nerdy city!
