The Fiscal Times recently released their list of the top 25 "most livable" cities in the U.S. and Washington State was well represented with three cities making this list! Olympia came in at No. 20 while Kirkland and Bellevue came in at No. 25 and No. 2, respectively.
With a strong economy and a housing market beginning to balance out, it is so exciting to see our Eastside cities making national news! We all know how fun the cities are and it's great to see others agree.
Here's why Kirkland made the cut: On the coast of Lake Washington, Kirkland offers a host of enviable features from a charming downtown to an abundance of trails and a dynamic economy. Residents enjoy pools, community centers, nearby wineries and fine restaurants.
According to The Fiscal Times, Bellevue ranked high on this list due to boasting some of the best schools in the country along with Bellevue College and City University of Seattle. The city offers a small-town environment but many entertainment options and events, such as the annual Bellevue Arts and Crafts Fair. It often hosts technology companies which has helped develop its downtown.
