Bellevue is a city located in King County, Washington, across Lake Washington from Seattle, the state’s largest city. Home to over 122,000 residents, Bellevue is the fifth-largest city in the state and the largest suburb city of Seattle. Bellevue is the sixth-wealthiest community in the state of Washington based on per capita income, and has been named repeated as one of the best cities in the United States to live, work, and start a business in, and has continually been ranked in the top-ten of best cities in the country.
Bellevue was first founded in 1859 and was a small, rural area, with little development economically despite sitting on the suburbs of one of the fastest-growing port cities on the west coast (Seattle). Things began to change during the Second World War, as industrial production at Seattle ports and foundries skyrocketed to help the war effort.
This led to a housing boom in Bellevue, particularly after the construction of the Lake Washington Floating Bridge, which cut travel time between Seattle and Bellevue down considerably and helped the city begin growing. In 1953 it was incorporated as a city, and has continued to grow at a rapid pace ever since. At the time of its incorporation, Bellevue was home to just under 8,000 residents.
During the summer months, average daily highs in Bellevue only reach into the mid-to-upper 70’s, though temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s are not unheard of. This usually makes auto transport easier, since the weather is nicer. As a Pacific Northwest city,
Bellevue sees plenty of rain, but snow is generally uncommon during the winter months which also helps keep auto transportation prices lower and carrier availability and interest higher. Lows usually drop down into the upper 30’s and lower 40’s during the winter, with daily highs usually in the high 40’s and low 50’s.
