Schools are split between not great and excellent based on where you live in Overlake. Not a lot of walkable activities for families (have to drive to parks and stores). Very busy roads around most neighborhoods. The bus access is great and the light rail will soon be accessible for this neighborhood. The area seems to cater to young professionals working at Microsoft.
the bellevue/redmond area is a great place to live with lots of access to important things like green spaces, entertainment, and services. it is however lacking in meaningful / healthy places for people under 21 to spend time, and the deforestation of this area in the name of real estate is depressing to say the least (ie. snoqualmie, issaquah). Better (faster, cheaper, more accessible/useful) public transportation is required.
We have big employers such as Amazon, Starbucks, and Microsoft but you cannot get a job if you are under 16 or sometimes 18.
