Bellevue is a beautiful city located in the greater Seattle area. Bellevue is often given the nickname of "city in a park" and this is well earned. Bellevue has some of the best public parks and gardens of any city I have ever been to. In terms of public services Bellevue is unmatched, with amazing public schools, a dedicated police department, and a plethora of youth services, Bellevue is the perfect place to live. The only pitfall people encounter in Bellevue is the housing prices, it may be difficult for lower income individuals to secure affordable living near the city center, but cheaper housing options can be found nearby, with short commute times.
Review Bellevue
Bellevue is a great place to live. I was personally born in Overlake and have gotten the privilege to continue residing on the Eastside for my entire 26 years of living so far and it has been wonderful.

There are a lot of great resources, good people, awesome food, and an opportunity for a AMAZING education. The police officers are kind of A-Holes, but if you're doing the right thing you don't really need to worry about them.

The Bellevue School District is the best rated district in Washington State. They have a great sports program, and a wonderful curriculum. I feel honored to reside in Bellevue, WA and will continue to live here until I find somewhere better.
Bellevue is a very diverse, inclusive, family friendly environment. Our neighborhood is very close net; we recently had a block party celebration for the fourth of July. The schools are fantastic and I was very pleased to have sent both my children to wonderful public schools. I have never felt unsafe in my neighborhood and I often take walks with my dog in the afternoon and greet other members of the community.
