Live near Bellevue’s bustling urban center or in its quiet suburban enclaves.

Welcome to Bellevue

Bellevue is Eastside’s bustling urban center. With a population nearing 150,000, it’s one of the Seattle Metro Area’s largest satellite cities and has become an increasingly popular place to spend a night out or do some shopping for residents of Eastside’s high-end suburbs. Homes here are always in-demand thanks to the city’s wide array of excellent luxury amenities, as well as its proximity to major tech and business hubs like Microsoft headquarters and the Bellevue Technology Center. Just to the northwest of Bellevue, you’ll find the adjacent town of Clyde Hill—a sprawling residential enclave that has quickly become one of Bellevue’s most sought-after suburbs. Perfect for work and play yet with much less urban density than Seattle, there’s a reason why Bellevue and its suburbs have developed their own distinct character.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

More great dining options include Fogo de Chao, a Brazilian barbeque restaurant serving a selection of authentic dishes that’s the perfect place for parties and large gatherings, The Lakehouse, which serves a menu of refined, New American meals and cocktails to satisfy high-end tastes, and Wild Ginger, a lauded establishment that serves Asian-inspired dishes and cocktails. 

When you’re looking for luxury shopping, Bellevue is hard to beat. Bellevue Square is a large shopping mall that’s a centerpiece of commerce in the city, featuring an incredible selection of high-end stores to shop for clothing, jewelry, housewares, gifts, and more. Or head to the Bravern for high end shopping like Hermes and Gucci. Stop by Nordstrom to find the best in designer clothing or learn about the latest tech for sale at the Tesla storefront.

Things to Do

Bellevue and Clyde Hill are thriving communities with plenty of cultural institutions, public events, gorgeous parks, and more to keep residents and their families entertained.
