"Family friendly community with relatively affordable housing"

I lived in nearby Lake Hills during 2nd and 3rd grade (and visited the Crossroads mall weekly), and delivered pizza for the Crossroads Dominoes during college (2004-2005). The area is about 10 minutes North off I-90, and a very racially diverse area of Bellevue.

Crossroads Mall has a fairly large food court, and quite a few shops and larger stores such as Sports Authority. I spent hours and hours and hours in Norm Johnson's Sportscards in my youth, but it shut down a number of years ago :(. There's also a movie theatre. Overlake is nearby (3 min drive), which has even more strip malls, department stores, and shops.

The area has a broad array of trails and parks a few minutes drive in Lake Hills for those who like to walk/jog/run.
Pros
  • Shopping
  • Not a terrible commute to downtown
  • Nearby trails and parks
Cons
  • Nightlife

"Easy to go green here"

Crossroads is a neighborhood in Bellevue that takes its name from the 40-acre Crossroads Mall at the heart of the neighborhood. The mall serves as an informal community center and is known for its inclusion of such activities as free live music, public art and cultural events, and a weekly farmers' market. This is a great place to buy your healthful and organic produce and overall green way of life products.

The Crossroads neighborhood has a large international population - including sizable Asian, Eastern European, and Hispanic populations - and over sixty languages are spoken in the area's schools. Children get a great deal of exposure to the diversity living among them.

The name 'Crossroads,' therefore, is a fitting one; it describes the meeting of cultures and sharing of ideas that make this unique community so remarkable. The neighborhood is rich in diversity and culture.
