    Bellevue College

    Elliott the Eagle was soaring over Bellevue when he noticed a bunch of students roaming around the campus of Bellevue College. He glided down to take a look. Located on 100 wooded acres, BC is the third-largest institution of higher learning in Washington. It boasts more than 32,000 students each year. Elliott’s favorite class was the Astronomy class because BC has its own planetarium and so he really enjoyed looking at the stars and figuring out the constellations. He also cheered loudly at a basketball game at Courter Family Athletic Pavilion where the Bulldogs won! Elliott is looking forward to cheering on the home team at a baseball game soon.

    Bellevue College offers bachelor degrees as well as associate degrees. Check out their website to learn more.

    Renton Library

    Elliott the Eagle was soaring over Renton and noticed something intriguing. He saw a library spanning across the swelling Cedar River! Feeling in the mood for a good book to read, he swooped down for a better view. Renton Library was built back in the 1960s and is a perfect bridge between Liberty Park and downtown Renton. It is one of the only (if not the only) library built over a river in the United States and maybe even the world. Being a part of the King Country Library System, gives one access to thousands of books, videos, and CDs. Stop in and check out the different classes and events available, such as “A River Runs Under it Book Club” and ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. Elliott hopes to see you there!

    The Reptile Zoo

    Can you find Elliott the Eagle in this picture? With all the rain these last couple of weeks, Elliott wanted to find somewhere inside to explore. He flew over to Monroe, WA and was excited to find The Reptile Zoo. If you love all things reptiles, this is the place for you because it boasts the most diverse collection! It is home to lizards, snakes, turtles, bugs, frogs and even an albino alligator! It is a hands-on experience that every age will enjoy. The Reptile Zoo was started by The Reptile Man (Scott Peterson) in 1996. Apparently, he also travels around and shares his knowledge at schools, festivals, parties and other places. He has even been on PBS! Monroe is a half-hour drive from Bellevue, WA down WA-522 and it is worth the trip. Elliott highly recommends this gem of a place.

    Triple XXX Root Beer

    This week Elliott the Eagle had a nostalgic feeling come over him and soared on over to Triple XXX Root Beer in Issaquah, WA. The big orange and yellow barrel has been a towering landmark since 1968 and is the last XXX Root Beer barrel sign across the whole United States. Before 1968, the Triple XXX Root Beer was located on the other side of Issaquah on Sunset Way. Elliott was excited to eat the delicious 1950’s style burgers and sip on a fantastic root beer float while rocking out to 1950's and 1960’s music. Starting on March 15th, the weekly car shows will rev up again. For more information on the car shows visit here.

    Keep an eagle eye open for when Elliott later visits one of the upcoming car shows. A couple of his friends own Jeeps and so he might be hitting the All Jeep Show on March 29th!

    Elliott at Ocean Shores 1 (3).jpeg

    Ocean Shores, WA

    Elliott caught the perfect air current and soared over to Ocean Shores, WA. While he was there he not only visited the seagulls but also glided over Damon Point (which is also known as Protection Island) and made a social call to the snow plovers, peregrine falcons, and brown pelicans hanging out there. After that, he headed back to the town area. Even though it was wintertime, he saw lots of people walking the beach, riding horses as well as riding bikes. He swung by Moby Dick's for a tasty lunch of fish and chips.
    Ocean Shores is an easy 2-1/2 hours away from Bellevue making it a great weekend trip destination. For a view of the beach from the Best Western Lighthouse Suites Inn, visit

    Elliott at Issaquah Museum (2).jpeg

    Issaquah Town Hall Museum

    Did you know that Issaquah has a history museum located in the Gilman Town Hall? Elliott was flying over and saw the open sign and decided to check it out. The Gilman Town Hall was built in 1886 and now houses a museum filled with pictures, artifacts and interactive elements that show many historical things about Issaquah’s past. Elliott enjoyed exploring Issaquah’s history which took him about a half-hour. His favorite part? The concrete jail out the back of the Town Hall that was used from 1914 to 1930. According to their website, the museum is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 11:00 – 3:00. The address is 165 SE Andrews Street, Issaquah. Elliott says enjoy!

    Clyde Beach Park, Bellevue

    Elliott the Eagle braved the snow flurries this week and headed to Clyde Beach Park in Bellevue along the shores of Lake Washington so he could enjoy the sunset. This park overlooks Meydenbeyer Bay where the glistening water was tranquil and serene although too cold for swimming this time of year! The park is over two acres and boasts a great play area for the youngsters.

    Once again Elliott recommends that you bundle up right now due to our dipping temperatures and snow on the ground but says it is definitely worth visiting.

    Elliott at Snoqualmie Falls.jpeg
    Snoqualmie Falls

    This week Elliott the Eagle flew over and landed at the raging Snoqualmie Falls just 23 miles up I-90 from Bellevue. The vast and astonishing amount of water that is pouring over the 270-foot Falls right now is causing a truly thunderous and impressive sight!

    As Elliott flew over, he saw a fantastic 2-acre park, a gift shop, an observation deck and a ½ mile, somewhat steep hiking trail down to the river at the base of the Falls. He wasn’t able to visit Salish Lodge perched at the top of the waterfall but is looking forward to a stay there in the future.

    Elliott recommends that you bundle up right now because it is a bit chilly right now with the low temperatures and the cloud of mist billowing up from the Falls… unless you have feathers like him!
