Beyond Kirkland
Kirkland is a convenient jumping off point for many Northwest adventures.

Redmond ~ 5 miles east / 13 minutes
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 since grown into a teeming city perhaps best recognized as the home of Microsoft and Nintendo of America. These modern, technological powerhouses are juxtaposed with the city’s rich history, tenderly preserved in the form of buildings like the beloved Old Redmond Schoolhouse, and the monumental carvings of Dudley Carter, the city’s late artist-in-residence.

To get a glimpse of what makes Redmond so special, visit their website. Better yet, visit in person, and Experience Redmond!

Bothell ~ 8 miles north / 12 minutes
Just north of downtown Seattle, the riverside town of Bothell is a quintessential Northwest getaway, offering a variety of remarkable natural and historic attractions as well as modern culinary and spirit experiences.

Bellevue ~ 7 miles south / 12 minutes
Bellevue, just to the south, offers premier shopping at The Braven or The Bellevue Collection, a stunning display of art at the Bellevue Arts Museum, and the Bellevue Botanical Gardens.

Woodinville ~ 8 miles north / 13 minutes
Head to the Woodinville Wine Country to sample wines from more than 70 local wineries and enjoy the multi-use recreational Burke Gilman Trail.

Seattle ~ 12 miles west / 20 minutes
