Great city, if you're OK with Northwest weather Posted On: 11/27/2010 5:37:22 PM
I've lived in Bellevue for 15+ yrs and overall it's great. It is expensive, but if you can make the economics work, it has just as much to offer as living in Seattle, without the intense congestion.
It's grown significantly beyond being just a Seattle suburb, into a city in it's own right. Excellent parks and other public facilities/services. Getting to Seattle ranges from 15-60 minutes, depending on traffic.
My only issue with this area (this region in general) after these many years is that it is very grey here. It's not so much actual precipitation (many cities get more), but just the number of grey days. The sunny days are glorious, any time of year, it's just that there are not enough of them.
