The City of Bellevue is a popular destination both for locals and visitors, who enjoy exploring the area and leave with their energy restored. From relaxing to extreme activities, check off everything on your to-see and to-do lists in the city, whether visiting the Bellevue Arts Museum, shopping at the Bellevue Collection, or ziplining at the Bellevue Zip Tour.
Incorporated in 1953 as an agricultural hub, Bellevue developed into a Seattle suburb and a significant business hub from the 1990s to the present. You can take the Early Bellevue Walking Tour offered by the Eastside Heritage Center if you’ve ever been interested in the history of the city.
Outdoor recreation has also been made accessible by strolling at the Bellevue Downtown Park, hiking from the city to the Twin Falls rail in North Bend, or renting a kayak at Bellevue’s Enatai Beach Park.
You will also find the best restaurants, wineries, breweries, distilleries, coffee shops, bars, and tasting rooms in the city. Enjoy a great selection of wines at the Suite Restaurant and Lounge or get your steak and sushi fix at Ascend Prime and Steak and Sushi.
If you’re in town for a few days, we recommend planning them around the annual events so you have something to look forward to. Come to the Bellevue Arts Fair, the Northwest’s largest arts and crafts festival, or come during the holidays to enjoy Snowflake Lane and Bellevue’s Season of Cheer.
