While Bellevue Botanical Garden is also not particularly secret, its 20 acres of paths and innovative gardens make an ideal first hike for a preschooler, from a "Lost Meadow" trail through wetlands and woodlands to a rock garden to — the ultimate adventure for the short set — a one-third-mile-long nature trail that crosses a ravine via a 150-foot suspension bridge. Don't miss a meditative walk through the Yao Garden.

Location: 12001 Main St., Bellevue
