    Bellevue Reviews

    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 great place to live and is very conveniently located. It is in between Seattle, Kirkland, Issaquah, Renton, and all the cities further away. It is very safe and has a school district with schools that routinely place in the top 200 in the country. It is also very safe with an extremely low homicide rate, and very low crime rate in general. It also contains a relatively diverse population. One bad thing, however, is the increasingly worsening congestion on both the local roads, and the freeways, particularly with the new express lane added on I-405.
    Heavily wooded, safe, friendly neighborhood with plenty of options for food and entertainment. Only disclaimer would be that to live fruitfully in this city, you will definitely need a car.
