It would have been nice to be of age and in this town in the 90s, for the height of alternative rock.

I chose the 60s because at that time, Boeing was just booming and was embarking on so many awesome projects, including:

1) The moon shot (Apollo program, they built one of the segments, albeit in another part of the country)
2) 747 program
3) 737 program

Among other things. The World's Fair was held in 1962. Seattle was also on the forefront of counterculture and saw many interesting things happen in terms of the Vietnam war protest, music, the arts, and the very beginnings of the coffee culture.

The 70s would have been interesting from a city economic diversification lesson. So would have the mid 80s once Microsoft gained a foothold here (and MAN would it have been sweet to have owned some of their stock!). 90s would have been interesting again for the cultural reasons and the Internet / continuing electronics boom.

But all in all, the 60s defined the city and region in ways that are still around today, with the 80s a close second.
