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!
