Bellevue is a large city located on the eastside, meaning east of Lake Washington. Kirkland lies to the north, Redmond and Issaquah to the east and Renton to the south. Long known as a suburb of Seattle, Bellevue is very much becoming its own urban city. In fact, Bellevues downtown is currently undergoing rapid changes, with the development of several new high-rise buildings to be used as retail, office and residential space. With all of this growth, Bellevue has recently seen a spike in population, and the most recent census estimates that 119,000 people currently reside in Bellevue. It was also rated by CNNmoney.com as one of the Top 25 Safest Cities in America. One of the unique things about living in Bellevue is the number of options residents have. While some reside in upscale, high-rise condos downtown, others choose the smaller, completely residential neighborhoods on the outskirts of the city. Many of these neighborhoods are quieter and feature a mix of lavish and comfortable homes. Bellevue is served by the Bellevue School District and is also home to a private and a community college. One of the greatest things about the growth of Bellevue is that it has become a more self-sufficient city. Many people who live in Bellevue are also able to work there. There are several big companies based in Bellevue. T-Mobile, Eddie Bauer and Expedia all have buildings located in Bellevue, which provide jobs for thousands. Microsoft, based in the nearby Redmond, also has offices downtown. With this said, not only do Bellevue residents often work in Bellevue, but many commute in from surrounding cities for work. Bellevues variety of homes and jobs makes it an excellent place to search for a home.
Its growing downtown has provided Bellevue with a fantastic retail district. Bellevue Square Mall is one of the largest in the Seattle area and has a number of fine stores such as Pottery Barn, Nordstrom and Tiffany & Co. The Lincoln Square Towers feature a 16-screen cinema. Among the thriving area downtown there are plenty of hip, sophisticated restaurants and bars. Though Bellevue is often defined by its downtown, it must be remembered that there are many other facets to the city. Nearly 100 parks exist in the city, providing plenty of open space for residents. Along with a number of typical parks, there are also a few unique areas. Kelsey Creek Park is both a park and farm. Here, visitors will find farm animals available for viewing daily. In the fall, Kelsey Creek Park hosts a free ˜Farm Fair, where there are a bunch of fun activities for the whole family. Pumpkin decorating, pony rides, live entertainment and food are among the activities. Clyde Beach Park, located on the beautiful Lake Washington, has a swimming area and beach to enjoy during the warm summer months. Its residents, parks and thriving downtown not only makes Bellevue a competitor to Seattle, but also a great place to live.
