Bellevue, WA

The city’s name comes from the French term belle vue (“beautiful view”), and its population is roughly 124,283. Known for its biennial Bellevue Sculpture Exhibition, it draws thousands of visitors to its Park Downtown to see up to 46 three-dimensional artworks from artists around the country.

Also, in celebration of its strawberry farming history, Bellevue holds a Strawberry Festival on the fourth weekend in June annually at Crossroads Park. The small town has also made outstanding progress in law enforcement by making use of the latest technological innovations.

Bellevue Police afforded the technologies like Crime Analysis Software, T-3 Electronic Vehicle for downtown patrols, Digital Forensics Server, IPads for field use, etc. Since it began in 2009, Bellevue Police Foundation has collected more than $233,000 in donations. So, Bellevue is considered to be one of the safest cities in Washington.

    1. How can any place in California be safe to live in?! The whole west coast is beautiful and used to be safe with plenty of fun things to do. Now that the Democrats have taken over, run as fast as you can from the west coast.

    I would add to your list of small towns which a safe and charming, the place where i now live, Monongahela, Pa. It’s in western Pennsylvania about 27 miles from Pittsburgh. It is a lovely old town over 150 years old with wonderful homes and buildings. Mny of the families and businesses have been her for generations. It has a wonderful business district with fine shops and restaurants with places within walking distance. It has a good economy and an affordable cost of living. There is little crime here because we have a fine police department, fire department, paramedics and a fine local hospital. The buildings are well kept up and there is no slums or grafitti. People are friendly and say hello on the streets. There are other fine communities like this in the easteren and midwestern United States that should be included.

  2. Fascinating that nothing is mentioned about the cost of living in any of these towns; any place is CA is cost-prohibitive and the same is true for anything in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Doesn’t matter how safe it is if you can’t afford to live there. Just sayin’.
