Kitsap Peninsula and Olympic Mountains on the Olympic Peninsula are to the west, beyond Puget Sound and to the east, beyond Lake Washington and the eastside suburbs, are Lake Sammamish and the Cascade Range. Lake Washington’s waters flow to Puget Sound through the Lake Washington Ship Canal which consists of two manmade canals, Lake Union and the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks at Salmon Bay which ends in Shilshole Bay. The sea, rivers, forests, lakes and fields surrounding Seattle were once rich enough to support one of the world’s few sedentary hunter-gatherer societies. The surrounding area is apt for sailing, skiing, bicycling, camping and hiking year round. This feature among other things attracts tourists to Seattle.

Seattle is itself hill, but not in a uniform way. Like Rome, the city is said to lie on seven hills. There are varying lists for seven hills, but typically include Capitol Hill, First Hill, West Seattle, Beacon Hill, Queen Anne, Magnolia and the former Denny Hill. The Wallingford, Mount Baker and Crown Hill neighborhoods are technically located on hills as well. Many of the hilliest areas are near the city center, with Capitol Hill, First Hill and Beacon Hill collectively constituting something of a ridge along an isthmus between Elliott Bay and Lake Washington. The break in the ridge between First Hill and Beacon Hill is manmade. It is the result of two of the many regarding projects that reshaped the topography of the city center. The topography of the city center was also changed by the construction of a seawall and the artificial Harbor Island at the mouth of the city’s industrial Duwamish Waterway.
The Harbor Island was completed in nineteen hundred and nine. The highest point within city limits is at High Point in West Seattle.
