Redmond is a city of wide, open parks, meandering trails, lively outdoor concerts and rich local culture. Its bustling downtown area is home to a large shopping complex, eclectic restaurants and shops, and a variety of lodging options for out-of-town visitors.

First settled in the 1870s, Redmond has grown into a city perhaps best known for being the headquarters of tech giants like SpaceX, Microsoft and Nintendo of America. Redmond’s identity as a hub for innovation is juxtaposed with the city’s rich history, preserved in the beloved old buildings found throughout Redmond’s downtown area and in the carvings of Dudley Carter, the city’s late artist-in-residence. The city is also known for its growing craft beer scene, which includes big names like Black Raven Brewing Company, Mac & Jack’s and Postdoc Brewing Company.

Located less than 30 minutes from Seattle and Bellevue, Redmond is an excellent home base for exploring the area. Nearby attractions include Woodinville Wine Country and Lake Washington, a haven for watersport enthusiasts.
