You'll Want To Visit Washington's Most Beautiful Tulip Farms Right Now
Given the diversity of our climate here in Washington, it’s tough to pinpoint any telltale signs of spring. But one thing is for certain: When April rolls around, Washingtonians get excited about the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. While it’s impossible to tell exactly when the tulips will bloom, the festival is held from April 1-30 every year in one of our state’s most beautiful counties.
While the Skagit Valley isn't the only place in Washington with fields of flowers, it has become synonymous with this amazing festival.
The climate here is just right to cultivate tulip and daffodil bulbs, which thrive in places like Holland.
Usually it's the daffodils that bloom first, in March.
Mostly found in La Conner, these blooms give the first hints that the tulips are on their way.
And by early to mid-April, most of the Skagit Valley looks like this.
The tulips have been a little late to bloom this year,
There are two sprawling tulip farms to visit.
