Newcastle is a nice, quiet suburb of Bellevue, WA. There are grocery stores, strip malls, gas stations and just about everything you'll need without having to go to Renton or Bellevue. The main drag (Coal Creek) can get busy during mornings and after work but it's relatively quiet for the most part.

Newcastle has plenty of schools, parks and hiking for families and the residence in the area. The streets and parks are well maintained and the streets and yards are kept nicely.

Newcastle works no matter which part of Seattle or Eastside you need to access - 10-12 miles away from Redmond, Downtowns Seattle, Issaquah and 6 miles from Downtown Bellevue. Lots of new projects and developments coming through. Stunning homes overlooking the Newcastle Golf Club and a great brunch place with Calcutta Grill with views that will take your breath away. A+ schools. Newcastle Commons appears to be an exciting project in the works. Lots of local parks including Lake Boren and Newcastle Beach Park. Extremely safe. What’s not to love?
The streets are very safe and there is a sense of community due to its small area. Many of my friends live in or near the area, so we pass through and shop in the area often. There are various things to do such as go to the YMCA, park, or have lunch. In general, everything is within walking distance; however, some areas of Newcastle are on a hill, which makes walking not always the best option.
