Suburban city in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest

Welcome to Redmond

As a suburb city of Seattle, Redmond offers a thriving town with all the amenities the locals crave. Redmond is in King County, and it's less than a 20-minute drive east of Seattle. Many of the locals work in town or Seattle at one of the many tech firms. 

Before European settlers arrived in the Redmond area, Native Americans thrived in this area for more than 10,000 years. In the early days, the area enjoyed a thriving logging industry and fishing community. 

After World War II, the city began to expand and grow into its current proportions. The tech boom of the 1990s turned Redmond into a thriving suburb city with many corporations settling in the area.

Local Lifestyle

Redmond is a great place to live, work, and play with fresh air and a healthy lifestyle built into the vibe of the city. Most of the homes in the area are single-family houses, and some of them feature spacious lots for outdoor entertaining. 

Many of the locals either work for one of the local businesses or commute into Seattle or one of the nearby towns. Throughout the year, activities are always available with fun and entertainment. 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Redmond provides an enticing selection of dining, shopping, and entertainment to suit any taste or interest. Lake Sammamish and the Sammamish River sit on the north side of the city, offering a range of outdoor pastimes. 

Featuring locally-sourced ingredients, Woodblock has a seasonal menu with a fresh take on American classics. The restaurant offers an extensive cocktail menu to enjoy before or after a meal. For authentic Italian delicacies, Sages is a great place to celebrate special occasions or a romantic date night. 

Shopping in Redmond ranges from local upscale boutiques to the top luxury names in the world. At the Redmond Town Center, locals enjoy wandering through this open-air mall with all the upscale brand names in one location. 

Things to Do

When the weather is nice, Sammamish Lake is a hotspot for a cornucopia of outdoor activities. The area also features a variety of annual events for the family or adults looking for a fun afternoon or evening. 

In the middle of the summer, the Redmond Derby Days bring the fun of a fall fair to the warmer months. There's a parade, carnival games, local vendors, and more. The BECU Outdoor Movies are a hit each summer. Families bring their blankets and picnic baskets to watch some of their all-time favorite movies. A picnic basket isn't necessary, as there are always local food trucks to grab movie snacks. 

In Marymoor Park, the Jerry Baker Memorial Velodrome features a bicycle racing track. These races occur frequently, and it's a popular way to spend some time cheering on a favorite competitor.

The public schools in Redmond include 10 elementary schools, eight middle schools, and two high schools. There are three private schools in town, one secular, one performing arts, and one religious.
