Seattle (/si’[email protected]/ (listen), [email protected]), is a seaport on the West Coast of America. It is Washington's seat. It is home to 737,015, the largest city in Washington state and the Pacific Northwest region. The population of the Seattle metropolitan area is 4.02 millions, which makes it the 15th largest in the United States. It is one of the fastest-growing large cities in the country, with a 21.1% growth rate between 2010 and 2020. 
Seattle lies on an island between Puget Sound, a Pacific Ocean inlet, and Lake Washington. It is located approximately 100 miles (160km) south of Canada's border. As a major gateway to East Asia trade, Seattle is the fourth largest port in North America for container handling. 
Before the arrival of permanent European settlers, Seattle was home to Native Americans for at most 4,000 years.  Arthur A. Denny arrived in Illinois with a group of travellers, later known as the Denny Party. They traveled via Portland, Oregon on the schooner Exact to Alki Point on November 13, 1851.  In 1852, the settlement was moved to Elliott Bay's eastern shore and named \"Seattle\", in honor of Chief Si'ahl from the local Duwamish/Suquamish tribes. Seattle is home to high numbers of Native, Scandinavian and Asian American residents, as well as a vibrant LGBT community, which ranks sixth in the United States for population.
