Directions to Bellevue's Old Main

Old Bellevue is located on the western part of Bellevue's Main Street, in a not-so-hidden part of the downtown core, just steps away from the waterfront at Meydenbauer Bay Park. The walkable neighborhood in the southeast downtown area is lined with boutique retail, restaurants, and small businesses, with many attractions to explore on foot. 


Parking along the surface streets on Old Main fill up quickly depending on the season or time of day. There are two dedicated surface lots and multiple adjacent on-street parking sites at Bellevue Downtown Park providing free parking for visitors. Several Old Bellevue shops and restaurants offer validated parking for customers in adjacent surface lots and garages. There are over 30 on-street parking segments, offering free two hour parking throughout the area between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm, except Sundays and holidays. Please be sure to check the marked wayfinding signage.
