With a downtown skyline dotted with orange cranes (due to the development of high-rise office and residential towers), plus upscale shopping centers and its own arts scene, Bellevue is no longer just a bedroom community of Seattle.
Companies including Expedia and Symetra Financial are headquartered in this boomtown on Lake Washington.
In addition to the glass buildings and emergence of chain restaurants, residents also enjoy walking through the historic retail district and safe neighborhoods.
