Redmond is an awesome suburb of Seattle. Just 20-30 minutes away from everything! Great little town center with awesome, hip, young vibe. Very diverse. Microsoft, Amazon, Nintendo, etc are all big local companies that bring in a lot of jobs and new people. Housing is very competitive and expensive though!

It's clean and very well kept. The schools are all very highly rated and they pay high attention to achademics. The town has such beautiful parks and trails to take your kids out on a nice sunny day. You'll never be bored with the different types of food and different cultures celebrated throughout the year during events. If you love the outdoors, then you'll absolutely love Redmond! During the Spring and Summer months, there will be live shows in the park and so many other different outdoor events. If you are someone who enjoys biking, then this is the place for you! There are so many bike trails and bike lanes throughout the city.
Redmond is a great alternative to living in Seattle. Most of Redmond is suburban, but there is a rapidly growing downtown district with parks and restaurants. However, the rent is very high, as it is populated almost entirely with Microsoft employees!
