Right next store to the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden, is the Pacific Bonsai Museum. Here, the living art of Bonsai is captured in an outdoor facility with 60 beautiful trees from China, Canada, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the United States are on display at any given time. The best part about the Pacific Bonsai Museum is that it’s open year-round and it’s completely FREE to visit!
After your day visiting the gardens to the south, head back to Seattle Southside for an appropriately themed farm-to-table meal at Copperleaf Restaurant. Copperleaf Restaurant is nestled inside the Cedarbrook Lodge, on 18 acres of naturally restored wetlands. Sustainability and local, fresh fare are their specialty as most of their vegetables come from their onsite garden, and virtually everything else is from local farmers and harvesters. The authentic Northwest flavors come to life in front of Copperleaf’s massive stone fireplace and dinner or lunch is always a special occasion in their intimate dining space.
