Bellevue, The Newest Tourist Attraction

By VDB Compass


The City of Bellevue has reported 1.6 million visitors in 2016, which has amounted to a 14.3% increase from 2015. And it seems that Bellevue's executive director is expecting another strong outcome for the 2017 summer season. 

Most visitors believe that Seattle will be too much hassle while Bellevue's location is a major draw. Bellevue is the perfect balance of vacation amenities, close to city and outdoor activities. One day could be spent visiting the Space Needle and Pike Place Market and the next can be spent hiking around Snoqualmie Falls or wine tasting in Woodinville. 

And with Bellevue's expansion plan, it will only become more desirable each year. Bellevue is also considered a safer and cleaner city, appealing to traveling families. We also contribute the increase of tourism due to strong economic growth of major companies and their employees that are bringing along their out of town family to tour the area. Bellevue has specifically seen a 20% increase in overnight stays over the last year. 

The amenities are endless with The Mercer Slough, Ziplining in South Bellevue Park and the many waterfront access points.
