The City in a Park
Bellevue is the high-tech and retail center of the Eastside, with more than 150,000 jobs and a downtown skyline of gleaming high-rises. With beautiful parks, top schools and a vibrant economy, Bellevue is routinely ranked among the best mid-sized cities in the country (Livability.com and 24/7 Wall Street). While business booms downtown, much of Bellevue retains a small-town feel, with thriving, woodsy neighborhoods and a vast network of trails. With nearly 100 parks, Bellevue is known as “a city in a park.” The city’s crime rates are consistently low. Retail options abound in Bellevue, while artists from around the country enter striking new works in the biennial Bellevue Sculpture Exhibition. Bellevue’s agrarian traditions are celebrated in the spring and fall at popular fairs at the Kelsey Creek Farm Park. More than 300,000 people visit the downtown area the last weekend in July each year for arts and crafts fairs. For more details, check out the Visit Bellevue website.
