Skagit valley tulips festival

 “We don't see things as they are; we see them as we are” 

Living in the Pacific Northwest has giving us the opportunity to see landscapes and enjoy nature in ways that we haven't done before.   Last weekend, we decided to start the spring season with a trip to the Skagit valley tulips festival. 

Tulips are my favorite flower and I totally enjoyed the fields full of rows and rows of different colors. The fields were breathtaking.  The photos speak by themselves.    

After touring the Roozengaarde, we went to La Conner for lunch.  La Conner is a charm town, located just 10 minutes drive from the tulips fields.   It is a small town where you can find cute shops, restaurants and a marina with great views.   I recommend to have lunch at La Conner Brewing company, they have beers on tap and wood-fired pizzas.

Plan ahead, and check this map before you go, to see which fields are in bloom.

  1. This place doesn’t have any 'i'm too cool and busy for you' wait staff. As per me, everyone at NY venues is nice, friendly, and helpful and they really seem to like their jobs there and that is important to me. We had an awesome experience here.
