Bellevue, WA elevation goes from 30' ASL to about 1400' ASL. Its next door neighbor, Issaquah, may even go a bit higher. Are there any other cities in the Continental US or Alaska that have a greater vertical?

Isn't the lowest elevation in Bellevue at Lake Washington which has an elevation of 16 ft ? Either way Los Angeles has a way higher elevation change.

Highest: 5,074 ft
Lowest: 0 ft
Difference: 5,074 ft

I think Carson city, NV is up there

Highest peak Snow valley peak 9,214 ft

Average: 4,812 ft

Difference: 4,402 ft, may be even higher since I can't find the lowest point.

Find me the greatest elevation changes between 2 McDonald's within the same city. Counting the top of a ski resort or the apex of a hill don't really count IMO.

In Austin, the lowest points are along the Colorado River near downtown at about 400 ft, and highest on the west side of the city at about 1200 ft. The topography rises abruptly along the Balcones fault and provides for beautiful hills, valleys, and great views right in the city on the west side. Of course, that's the most expensive part of the city.

4900 feet at Rio Grande to 6400 feet at eastern city limit in Sandia Mountain foothills.

1500 feet approx. elevation change.

Albuquerque also has a tramway to the top of Sandia Peak 10,678 feet.

Elevation change total then is...... approx. 5,778 feet.

Sandia Peak is not within city limits though.
