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!
I love this area, there has been so much growth over the past few years so there is always something new to discover. I have lived in the area since I was three and as I have gotten older I have discovered more and more that I like about the area. One thing in particular is how close Redmond is to so many other places, I love the city so being within half an hour of downtown Seattle is perfect for me!
