We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Sound fun? It is! That’s why thousands travel from all over to enjoy the event. If you’d prefer to take pictures without the crowds, visit after the festival ends but don’t wait too long – blossoms start to fall before the end of April.
