From Bellevue to Sammamish: Which King County Neighborhood is Right for You?


Known as “The Evergreen State,” Washington Abounds in Natural Beauty and King County Is No Exception

Moving to a new city can be intimidating and choosing a neighborhood to live in can be even more daunting. But don’t worry—we’re here to help you decipher which King County neighborhood is right for you!


Situated across Lake Washington and adjacent to Seattle, Bellevue has something for everyone. Bellevue is known for its parks and green spaces, quality schools, arts and culture, and thriving economy, particularly in the tech and retail scene. Stop and smell the roses at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, enjoy a day in the sunshine at Marymoor Park, or marvel at the fascinating art pieces at Bellevue Arts Museum.  


Located in close proximity to Seattle, Remond is known for being the home of Microsoft, Nintendo Switch, Starbucks, and Costco. But for those who aren’t in the tech scene, there’s still plenty of other options. Whether you’re in the mood for shopping or dining, the Redmond Town Center is the perfect place to go for a night out. Redmond’s natural beauty attracts both residents and visitors alike. The Redmond Watershed Preserve and Bear Creek Trail are the perfect places to enjoy a day in nature.  


Planted on the edge of Lake Washington and surrounded by mountains, Kirkland offers the best of both worlds. The city’s downtown waterfront is lined with fine-dining restaurants, art galleries, upscale boutiques, and public parks and beaches. From art lovers to outdoor enthusiasts, Kirkland has something for everyone. Enjoy an enthralling performance at the Kirkland Performance Center or spend time at Juanita Beach Park, enjoying a picnic or simply lounging on the sandy beach. Adventure seekers can take advantage of paddleboarding and kayaking on Lake Washington. 


Only 30 minutes outside of Seattle, Sammamish is a town with a fascinating history, a vintage downtown area with restaurants and shops, and top schools. In addition to a wide variety of top-tier restaurants and activities to enjoy, Sammarish also abounds in outdoor activities. Enjoy waterfront activities on Lake Sammamish, camp in the surrounding Lake Sammamish State Park, or enjoy a day of fishing at Beaver Lake.
