On the Eastside there are many nice areas to vast and the historic town of Issaquah is just the right place for you to spend some quality time. First there is Gilman village, where you can find all the essence of the old community of Issaquah. Gilman is a small village, which is made up with more than 40 shops and restaurants, located in this small mountain town of Issaquah.
Gilman village is one of the most distinctive shopping destinations. The designers made this beautiful village by renovating the unwanted, old mining, farming buildings and converted them into shops and restaurants. The designers, thanks to some famous architects made this wonderful shopping center to show respect to the history of the old community of Issaquah. So instead of making a museum you can just spend the day eating drinking and walking in and out the shops, what a grand idea!. Make sure you see the old gas station.
Besides Gilman Village you can also visit Issaquah for its natural beauty. This authentic experience is to see the mountains that are easy to see in the background.
