Somerset is a neighborhood in Bellevue, Washington. It contains Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart , Eastgate Park and Somerset Elementary School. Residents say Somerset is what the founders of Bellevue – French for beautiful view – must have had in mind when they named the city. The hill called Somerset, which tops out just under 1,000 feet, turned out to be a favorite spot to gaze out across Lake Washington and Seattle to Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains. And the beautiful view continues today, with Somerset being a favorite vantage point from which to watch the Blue Angels during Seafair, enjoy Fourth of July and New Year's Eve fireworks or to just take in panoramic views of Bellevue and Seattle.
