  • Redmond is about 16 miles east of Seattle and is the home to Microsoft.
    The bicycle capital of the world is what Redmond is known for.
    Lots of parks, and an absolutely beautiful small town feel.
    I love Redmond!

  • It's Seattle's arm pit. North from 90 along 405 (which is going to be "great' for traffic right now.) It's probably comparable to most "suburb" areas that surround a big city. There's pockets of good neighborhoods and not so good neighborhoods etc.

  • It can also be kind of snotty. They try to be hoity-toity like Bellevue/Issaquah, but don't always pull it off. My husband worked at the UPS in Redmond for several years.
