WELCOME TO THE EASTSIDE
BELLEVUE – ISSAQUAH – REDMOND – AND BEYOND
I’m Megan, the face behind the keyboard and camera at Discover the Eastside and passionate fan of this amazing corner of the Pacific Northwest I call home. I’m on a mission to share my love of this incredible community and the best of Seattle’s Eastside suburbs with residents, visitors, and those looking to move to the area. I write a variety of informational and opinion pieces focused primarily on life in five of the largest cities of East King County: Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, Sammamish and Issaquah; but often explore surrounding communities such as Woodinville and those in the Snoqualmie Valley as well!
MORE THAN JUST SEATTLE’S SUBURBS
The suburbs that make up the Eastside of Washington’s King County have long established themselves as a vibrant, diverse place to visit and call home. With unprecedented access to the outdoors and an abundance of wonderful cuisine, there’s no shortage of hidden gems to discover on what Seattle area locals refer to as “The Eastside.”
