Restaurants

The Issaquah Highlands is the home of Issaquah's fastest growing area. Here, quality restaurants accompany a massive movie theater in the neighborhood's main shopping area to ensure a night full of entertainment.

Nightlife in the Highlands centers around a posh, suburban experience. For fine dining, visit Sip Wine Bar and Restaurant. A haven of wine and American food, this restaurant is the perfect destination for a special occasion or simply a night out on the town. Savor a local wine while feasting on the radishes, lettuce, and other produce grown in their own organic garden. Focusing on locally sourced and organic ingredients, Sip is an oasis for those who want to enjoy a fine dining experience in their neighborhood. Stop by Regal Cinemas a few blocks away to complete your night out.

Visit Bai Tong Thai Restaurant for an authentic Thai experience. Choose to sit inside or outside as you enjoy a refreshing Thai Iced Tea and local favorite of Garlic Chicken. After dinner, stop by Pinkabella Cupcakes to satisfy your sweet tooth. Cupcakes offered include classics like Vanilla and Limoncello, but Pinkabella's must-try dessert is their Sweet Potato cupcake, topped with an irresistible marshmallow frosting. Book Pinkabella's activity room in the back of the shop for a saccharine party for up to 20 guests.

History

The Highlands first came to conception in the mid-1990’s and continues to expand its reach to this day. Over 2,000 jobs are created from the businesses in this neighborhood alone, building a sense of community that is almost unheard of in this day and age.

The Issaquah Highlands’ single largest driving force in instilling a sense of community is sustainability. Everything from businesses to residences, to the advanced Swedish medical center, revolves around the ideology of improving practices to positively impact the world both in the short-term and long-term.

Any opportunity to partake in a community event is taken advantage of by the Highlands residents. Transportation to Issaquah’s annual Salmon Days Festival, celebrating the salmon spawning season, is offered directly from the Highlands Park and Ride, allowing exclusive access to one of the city’s quirkiest and most treasured traditions.

Transportation

The Highlands is most easily accessible by walking and biking, but driving is best if you will be shopping. Shopping centers in the highlands are equipped with an abundance of parking spaces large enough to fit an SUV, while the residential streets offer an opportunity to fine-tune your parallel parking skills. The immediacy of the neighborhood highlights the pedestrian accessibility for which the Highlands continues to strive. Bike lanes run along the perimeter of the entire neighborhood. The Issaquah Highlands Park and Ride allows commuters to park for free and take a direct bus to Bellevue or Seattle for just $5 round trip. Walking or biking to the park and ride is also an option for those who prefer not to drive, as bike lanes and sidewalks run along the perimeter of the entire neighborhood. The Highlands sits just outside Uber's range, but taxis from larger neighboring areas are an option as long as you call in advance.

Those living in the Highlands appreciate an average commute time that is in line with the rest of the city. Travel a quarter mile south on Highlands Drive NE to get onto I-90, and stop by the conveniently located Starbucks drive-thru on your way to make your commute that much more enjoyable.

Cost

The Highlands entertains a unique blend of luxury and affordable housing to rent or to purchase. The cost of living in the Highlands is 6 percent higher than the city average but is offset by the proximity of public transportation and retail centers nearby.

The median rental price for a one-bedroom is $730, and the availability of free parking throughout the neighborhood sweetens the deal. An average gas price that sits 2 percent below the national average doesn’t hurt, either. The $4 average cost of a pint of beer adds to the Highlands' appeal.

Shopping

The heart of the Highlands is Grand Ridge Plaza. The 25+ stores in this shopping center eliminate the need to leave the neighborhood for items usually only found in big city malls. Those shopping at Grand Central Plaza will find clothing for everybody at Marshall’s but will also have the option to shop at a variety of specialized retailers. Civilized Nature pet store sells top of the line products for your furry friends. You can even bring your pets into the store for a more personalized shopping experience. Beauty lovers appreciate Ulta, supplying top brands for beauty, hair, and body supplies. The store even has its own hair and nail salon with professionals ready to pamper.

As far as necessities are concerned, Safeway’s central location is perfectly convenient to pick up groceries while the adjacent gas fuel station is an added bonus. The BevMo one block away ensures that both your pantry and liquor cabinet will be stocked with the best selections. If you're willing to venture a bit farther, the Issaquah farmer's market hosts over 8,500 shoppers each Saturday from May to October.

Parks

One of the Highlands’ most unique features is its parks:1500 acres of the neighborhood is dedicated solely to outdoor recreational areas. One of the 22 parks surrounding the Highlands is Grand Ridge Park. Equipped with non-traditional play sets, this park entertains both the young and the young at heart. The community also offers Running Club, Tennis, and Playgroup to stay active as a community.

Bark Park is one of two off-leash dog parks in the neighborhood. With designated separate areas for smaller and larger dogs, this park has plenty of room for the whole family to have worry-free fun with their adored pooches.

Have a private function? Rent Blakely Hall for any private function you need. The community center even has a rentable “Block Party Wagon” full of grills, yard games, and picnic supplies that can be brought to any location in the Highlands. Behind Blakely Hall, "Highlands Day" takes place each year, filling the neighboring Village Green Park with carnival rides, food, and more.
