The recipient of numerous awards, including Best Family-Friendly Fun from the readers of 425 magazine, KidsQuest Children's Museum provides its pint-sized patrons with 6,000 square feet of interactive, educational exhibit space. Grab the nearest child or child-like facsimile and clamber up the ladder that leads to the tree house, where kids can peer through a telescope using the same optometric principles Galileo used to spy on his neighbors. Then head for the garage, home to all manner of pulleys, levers, gears, and wheels, giving kids a glimpse of the sorts of simple machines responsible for powering the Internet. Water-based exhibits introduce kids to the fun they can have simply by combining the hydrogen and oxygen found in most homes, while a puppet theater gives budding thespians a chance to display their dramatic passions with a bevy puppets in need of hand and a voice. Many special programs and activities, such as those coming up during Creepy Crawlers Week (October 5–10), are complimentary, making each museum visit a potentially new experience. As an added bonus, Groupon purchasers can also apply this Groupon's $30 value toward an annual membership by showing their voucher or proof of admission via Groupon at the museum's admissions counter within two weeks of redeeming Groupon.

In 2005, a group of avid badminton players finally pinpointed their favorite part of the game: community. Springing from this insight, they opened Bellevue Badminton Club, inviting members to mingle or hide from exes behind their rackets on 11 courts open 24/7. The club’s coaches, including Israel's 1998 national champion and a seven-time national collegiate title winner, lead private lessons and classes. For juniors and adults alike, classes range from laid-back to competitive based on pupils' abilities and goals.

When learners vacate the courts, members and nonmembers have free rein to play drop-in matches or trace outlines of each other in chalk. Round-robin doubles and singles leagues cultivate atmospheres of amiable competition, enabled by top-shelf Yonex equipment found at the pro shop.

Dizzy’s Tumblebuses both look like bright yellow school buses, yet they have never taken a kid to school. They don’t even have seats inside. Instead, their interiors are stocked with tumbling equipment, ball pits, and slides, and they make stops at schools, where they augment gym classes. These traveling fun-buses were invented by founder and mother of three, Dizzy, who has spent the last 10 years growing her company, trying to find parking spaces big enough for her buses, and testing out lesson plans with her own eager kids.

And in addition to the busses, Dizzy also created Dizzy’s Bus Stop, the company’s stationary facility. Despite its immobility, the facility hosts a bus structure inside that recreates the fun of the company’s popular Tumblebuses. Kids can clamber up a pint-size rock-climbing wall, jump on trampolines, and join in activities from dress-up to play dough sculpting. To accommodate a variety of little ones, the center offers drop-in day care, parent-supervised open play sessions, or preschool for tykes ages 2-5.

Situated upon 12 acres of idyllic pastures, Cougar Mountain Stables is the proud home of owners who live onsite, overseeing the actions of all steeds at all hours. Here, under nature’s verdant gaze, aspiring riders learn to trot in summer-camp sessions or lessons tailored toward either Western or English styles. During times of inclement weather, lessons move to the 60’x120’ indoor arena. When the sun is shining and the thunderstorms are busy bullying faraway tide pools, riders and their horses can explore the Cougar Mountain trails, located just a horseshoe’s throw away from the stables.
