I love Bellevue because of all it has to offer. You have the city life, a 30 min drive from incredible hiking, or if you travel the opposite way you're at the beach. The neighborhoods are safe, well kept up, and a great amount of diverse restaurants to try. The schools are wonderful and the people are even better. With so many different fields of work from medical to tech and everything in between there is plenty of job opportunity. Bellevue will be my forever home!

It's such a beautiful city with lots of racial diversity and great public schools. It's known to be quite safe and family friendly, which plenty of parks and little beaches by the lakes. It's close to lakes, mountains, bike trails, and forests - all these Pacific Northwest delights, perfect for the outdoorsy person.

The downside is housing prices are skyrocketing. People living here are more affluent than average - some are even being priced out of the market. Many immigrants (often from Asia) buy real estate here. Many people are very health conscious. The population is increasing and there is lots of construction. Commute times are increasing quickly as well. Job opportunities are good if you have the skills like computer science, engineering, or business because the greater Seattle area has so many tech companies.
I came here to go to Bellevue College. My relative used to live and study here couple years ago. She actually encouraged me to do my associate's in Bellevue College, because they are good college where you can start your journey. The neighborhood and the city is very friendly, clean, safe, unlike Seattle. Population's around 144'000 as last time I looked up it on google. Houses, in other words, real estates are expensive, so as the goods. I guess the price goes up with the living environment itself. I would definitely come back here when I graduate; also would encourage people to live here.
