Visited my uncle here this past August — such a beautiful little city (just like the majority of Washington state XD). I especially loved the graffiti wall; I adore the concept and wish they had one available here in Missouri. Hoping to get into UW, so maybe I’ll be back in Redmond soon =].over 6 years ago
i’m hoping to move to Redmond in just 2 years with my boyfriend/fiance/almost-husband. he’s going to Digipen and i’m hoping to go to grad school somewhere. we are soo excited about moving because we live in Lubbock, Texas now and its horrible here!over 6 years ago
Well, I graduated college and they made an offer I couldn’t refuse. I stay for the work, but the long rainy season gets old, so I will consider leaving after now 9 years. Beautiful summers, San Juan Islands, sailing, camping, wonderful live music culture and terrific eating of all ethnic varieties, all the arts you can hope for outside of NY or SF. Terrific outdoors, skiiing, hiking, fishing, lakes, mountains, rain forests, etc.over 6 years ago
..which admittedly would probably get boring after a short while, but there are a lot of great places to eat in the more rustic downtown area.. especially Indian. The best Mexican place I know in the greater Seattle area is in Redmond.. Taqueria El Gallo.
It’s also great to come out to a friend’s large house in Redmond and party here… as long as you don’t drive back to Seattle if intoxicated, or can sleep over, of course. Redmond partiers are underrated.
Oh yeah, very pretty too, if you look above and beyond the tech and the burb dreck.
But it’s certainly a better visit than Bellevue!
Kirkland beats Redmond for visiting, though, because it has a pretty colorful waterfront area.over 7 years ago
It’s so hard to look at someplace you lived through the eyes of a tourist. Did I like it? Well enough. Will I go back? Yes, because I have friends and family there. Would I recommend it? Not really the first place that pops to mind when I think of ‘travel’.over 7 years ago
