As the fifth largest city in the state of Washington with a population of approximately 120,000, Bellevue is known as the high-tech and retail center of the state's Eastside region, with its numerous skyscrapers and more than 130,000 jobs.
For those seeking apartments in the Bellevue area, however, it is important to note that despite the industrialization of the downtown area, much of the city maintains a small-town feel with its vast woods and green spaces. Because of this unique composition, people often refer to Bellevue as a "city in a park."
Bellevue's location between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish and a short drive from the Cascade Mountains presents unlimited opportunities for apartment renters looking to take part in outdoor recreational activities such as kayaking and hiking.
In addition to its excellent location and appealing scenery, Bellevue apartment hunters are sure to participate in perhaps the most popular aspects of the city: its festivals. One of these events, Bellevue's annual Strawberry Festival, draws thousands of people each year.
The Lake Washington Strawberry Festival, which takes place in late June, is a revitalization of an old Bellevue tradition, when the region was known for it's strawberry farming. According to local legend, in 1925, Mrs. Charles W. Bovee of Bellevue had a dream that the city would hold a festival that would bring a large number of visitors and great recognition to her home town.
To make this dream into a reality, the Strawberry Festival Committee, made up of five men and five women, raised $40 in to finance the first ever festival in June of that year. The four-day event attracted 3,000 visitors and the front page of the Lake Washington Reflector the next day said that the festival left visitors "with the impression that here was a beautiful town and a fruitful district settled by a courteous, hospitable people."
Today, Bellevue apartment residents who attend the festival can visit the various vendors, participate in games and contests ranging from coloring contests to miniature golf and attend an auto show, which features exceptional and vintage vehicles.
A resident who lives at the property and has completed a resident satisfaction survey.
Advertising properties provide a list of email addresses of its residents to Kingsley Associates, a third party market research firm, who then sends out the satisfaction survey to the residents. Properties may also conduct satisfaction surveys of its residents through other third party market research firms. In those cases, we will publish those survey responses as long as the questions conform to our standard survey format.
Because reviews are from Certified Residents, and are managed by a third party, you can feel confident that the feedback provided is accurate and trustworthy.
