Bellevue/Eastside

Exploring beyond Seattle’s borders

Just a short drive across Lake Washington, along the longest floating bridge in the world, Bellevue is a green wonderland with nearly 100 parks dotting its landscape between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish, offering a downtown neighborhood with plenty to do. Oodles of restaurants, major stores and chic boutiques are scattered across the walkable downtown core, beckoning to those who like to window shop and people watch. The Bellevue Arts Museum sits in the center of it all, featuring rotating exhibits, the majority of which celebrate Northwest crafts and design artists.

From Bellevue, the “Eastside” unfolds with a myriad of delights for visitors to explore. Perfect your swing and take in the panoramic views at the Golf Club at Newcastle. Sip your way from tasting room to tasting room in Woodinville Wine Country. Explore Kirkland’s waterfront parks and beaches. Or take a short drive to Snoqualmie Falls, a breathtaking 268-foot waterfall and a fitting introduction to the Cascade Mountain Range.
