Now is an appropriate time as ever to say happy spring! I recently was able to take a short day trip to Skagit Valley, WA to visit Tulip Town, one of the main growers for Skagit Valley’s Tulip Festival. May 1st was the last day for this season of tulips so I’m glad my sudden impulse to go visit the flowers was in time. $7 per person in exchange for a relaxing walk through the tulip fields is definitely worth it! Although it is too late to go visit this season’s blooms here are a couple tips for traveling to visit the flowers in the future:
If you plan on taking pictures (which you should) charge your camera!
Bring shoes you don’t mind getting dirty, you are in farm land after all
Plan bathroom breaks wisely as traffic can get heavy on weekends and there are no places to stop along the two lane road (Read The Stranger’s article for more info)
Pack a water bottle and some snacks for the drive
Bring cash to avoid that annoying ATM withdrawal fee (I forgot about this one this year)
Don’t walk in the flowerbeds, it’ll ruin the flowers - staff have posted reminders all over the fields, so please be courteous
Visiting the tulips has me in the mood for some more adventures and reminded me of our upcoming Travel with Purpose trip to Côte d'Ivoire.
