From its vital coal mining heritage to its vibrant recreational destination of today, Newcastle offers its residents a quiet respite from urban adventures.

With nearby Cougar Mountain Wildland Park, plentiful water recreation on Lake Sammamish and Lake Washington, and easy commutes to both Seattle and Bellevue, Newcastle is close to all the action; yet its citizens are appreciative of the employment, shopping, and fun activities to be found right in their own quaint downtown, which has benefitted from recent renovations.  There are hiking trails and parks to explore, concerts in the park to delight in, and, each September, Newcastle Days to remind them all of their rich history.  One of the best small towns in America, Newcastle’s citizens honor its legacy, put a nice polish on its present, and are committed to building its future together.
