Don’t miss Bellevue’s world-class dining, shopping and entertainment
As home to a vibrant arts scene, bustling restaurants, a growing tech-industry presence and one of the Northwest’s premier shopping destinations, Bellevue buzzes with activity every day. But the holiday season seems to truly be its magic season, with a plethora of family-friendly events complementing world-class shopping and dining in its centralized retail-and-entertainment corridor.
SHOPPING MADE EASY
Find the city’s retail core at The Bellevue Collection, three interconnected complexes filled with shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and more. The collection’s mall, Bellevue Square, is home to a who’s who of noteworthy brands. About a half-mile east, The Shops at the Bravern is another place to go to find luxury items from high-end retailers.
For a more old-fashioned vibe, head to Old Bellevue’s Main Street. The tree-lined neighborhood offers a mix of boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
The latest expansion to The Bellevue Collection’s Lincoln Square brought a new suite of dining choices to the city’s already robust restaurant scene. Among the most unique is Lincoln South Food Hall. The space houses seven mini-restaurants with offerings from many culinary traditions. There are many more options nearby, ranging from casual quick bites to formal destination dining.
