Bellevue, Seattle’s younger sibling across Lake Washington, is maturing into a beautiful city with increasingly diverse entertainment, shopping and fine dining. Some of the better events to try during your Puget Sound visit include:
- 6th Street Fair, a taste of the arts.
- Bellevue Live Jazz
- Bellevue Arts Museum, events throughout the year for art lovers.
Great restaurants abound in the Puget Sound region and these Bellevue options are my favourites:
- Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar, Chef John Howie’s innovative menu uses the best local seafood traditionally prepared with a twist.
- Szechwan Chef, the best Chinese dining experience in the Puget Sound and the best Szechwan meal I’d had since visiting the region 20 years ago.
