Redmond, Washington, is a blend of vibrant city life and the great outdoors, situated about 15 miles east of Seattle and just west of the magnificent Cascade Mountains. As a crucial component of Seattle’s high-tech hub, and home to major companies like Microsoft and Nintendo of America, it’s also a growing community where thousands of working professionals live, work, and play.
In terms of recreation, Redmond is home to many outdoor trails and parks. And for sightseeing opportunities, visitors to the area can check out any number of interesting spots both in Seattle and the surrounding areas. The region’s central location is ideal for various day-trip adventures, such as a ferry-ride across the Puget Sound to Whidbey Island or the Olympic Peninsula.
