Just outside Seattle, Bellevue Botanical Garden  is a FREE venue to delight your senses in all seasons of the year.  The beautifully maintained gardens include a really lovely rock garden with an amazing variety of dwarf conifers, a lush perennial border filled with gorgeous grasses, and a relaxing strolling path through the woodlands and over a fun suspension bridge.

This is a great place for a relaxing afternoon and you can pick up tips for water wise gardening in their demonstration garden as well.  The kids will love a run through the woodland garden, and coffee is available at the kiosk.
