City of Bellevue

Bellevue is the fifth largest city in Washington. Located between two beautiful lakes with a population of 120,000 only minutes away by bridge from Seattle and its urban lifestyle. Money Magazine said Bellevue has more jobs than people because of all-star employers like Microsoft, Expedia, Google, Eddie Bauer and Nintendo. These companies have attracted the brightest and most creative professionals of the decade. Called the high-tech and retail center of the ╦ťEastside with more than 130,000 jobs, Bellevue is a skyline of gleaming high-rises.

As business booms, much of Bellevue still has that small-town feel. With thriving, woodsy neighborhoods filled with trees and nature it has large friendly streets without sidewalks. Towns like Medina, Clyde Hill, Hunts Point and Yarrow Point are home to some of the top CEOs in America. Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Amazon’s Jeff Besos, John Stanton the Nordstrom family, along with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, and coach Pete Carroll, all call Bellevue home. There’s a vast network of green spaces and recreational facilities that keep people calling Bellevue area city in a park and parks are everywhere.

In Bellevue kids still walk to school and know their neighbors. Bellevue’s schools are rated among the best in the nation. News Week’s Top 100 High Schools showcased Bellevue High, Newport High, Interlake High and The International School in the top 20 High Schools in the nation. And if your kid likes football, Bellevue High School has won the state championship seven of the last nine years.

Named one of the top five leading shopping centers in America, Bellevue Square and the new Braven has it all, with an abundance of top rated restaurants, movie theatres, shops and entertainment, it is at the center of this growing downtown area.

If you enjoy professional sports, the Sounders, Mariners and Seahawks are moments away across the floating bridge, all playing in new state-of-the-art stadiums. And if you need your college fix, The University Of Washington brings you the best of the Northwest and Pac 12 athletics as it sits along Portage Bay with views of the Olympic and Cascades, snow capped peaks.
