Some things to substantiate: excellent access to organic food and farmers markets, great beer, huge soccer (football) culture, neighborhood pubs and cafes everywhere, many seattle area have great walking access to these things, excellent respect for the environment, gorgeous parks all over the place, very open minded, non-judgmental, expressive, unique, fantastic theatre.
Great ex-pat gathering groups for Brits, French, Germans, Irish, and loads of others. See some links below:

Alliance Française de Seattle | Seattle's French Language and Cultural Center | Welcome | Bienvenue
Seattle Brit Meetup (Seattle, WA) - Meetup
Irish Heritage Club of Greater Seattle
Seattle Auf Deutsch - Your German Resource in Seattle
Norwegian Organizations - NorskSeattle.com
Seattle is not anywhere near the same level of walkability as a European City, but it certainly trumps most American cities in walkability. San Francisco and Boston are much more similar in terms of urban feel to a European city. Seattle has other aspects that feel European, like the huge soccer culture.

Well Seattle has an MLS team, the Sounders.

Just to add to this thread, rather than start a new one, I've got a fondness for all things Japanese, and living in California I've got the fantastic Mitsuwa plazas. Does Seattle have anything like these stores? I know Mitsuwa is not in Washington but with Nintendo there, it has to have a decent sized Japanese community.
