Seattle is a coastal seaport city and the seat of King County, in the U.S. state of Washington. Seattle is the largest city in both the State of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region of North America[note 1] and, as of July 2013, the fastest-growing major city in the United States.
In 2008, Max Caulfield's family decided to move from their home in Arcadia Bay to Seattle. The news saddened both Max and her best friend, Chloe Price, but Max was excited at the prospect of living there.
Once they were settled in Seattle, Max adapted to the life there. She befriended two residents, Kristen and Fernando, and she and her father became a fan of the hockey team, the Seattle Stormhawks. Max did her best to avoid behaving like a tourist in Seattle, despite her parents' eagerness to take photographs at specific landmarks like the Space Needle. Max believed the environment of Seattle suitable for her friend, Chloe, who might have blended in with the artistic and punk element of the city.
When Max was accepted into Blackwell Academy back in Arcadia Bay, she moved back to Arcadia Bay without her parents. Max lived on-campus at Blackwell for a month before she encountered Chloe again.
