If you know anything about Washington State, then you know that King County is home to Seattle. King County is also home to Bellevue, Washington. There are plenty of great historical landmarks to see and attractions to visit in Bellevue. Once you’re done spending time in Bellevue, you can hop on over Lake Washington and immerse yourself in the culture of Seattle, too.
One of the first things you have to visit if you’re hanging out in Bellevue is the Jimi Hendrix Statue. Technically, it’s located on Broadway in Seattle, but it’s listed as a Bellevue landmark and attraction. Then there is the Volunteer Park Water Tower. One reviewer talks about how the Space Needle is in Seattle, and he or she goes on to say that some people call the Volunteer Park Water Tower the ‘poor man’s Space Needle.’
The Space Needle might be a landmark you definitely want to cross the river for while on your vacation. The Sterling Plaza is located in Bellevue, and according to one travel site, it’s one of the places to be while you’re in Bellevue. There is also the Bellevue Arts Museum and the Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art.
Bellevue features yet another museum, a children’s museum, so if you’re visiting with family, this would be a good landmark or attraction to visit. You might also want to visit the Bellevue Botanical Garden as well as the beach parks and trails. As you can see, Bellevue, Washington will keep you busy.
There are some great restaurants in Bellevue as well that you can stop by for a bite to eat while you’re visiting different areas of the city. You’ll want to spend some time around Lake Washington, and don’t forget to make that trek into Seattle as well, where you will find more to do than you have time for.
