April is such an incredible time to visit the Skagit Valley in Washington State for the tulip festival. It’s probably the busiest month for this area with queues of visitors keen to see the beauties Mother Nature has to offer. This gives the local towns and the Roozengaarde tulip farm a real buzz and an excited energy of people admiring and capturing the beauty. On weekends, the farm is full and even overcrowded. If you come here on week days, you’ll get all the beauty almost to yourself, you can wander around it as you please without a lengthy wait for a spot to snap a picture. But even overcrowded, the tulip farm is a true wonderland. Started more than 30 years ago, the tulip festival is one of the most remarkable spring events in the Pacific Northwest. The farm flows seamlessly from the windmill, which is a centerpiece of the farm, to the beautifully designed flower beds and gardens on to the tulip fields. A world away from the craziness of bigger cities and heavy traffic, the tulip fields feel like a pretty little oasis connecting you to the nature. Take a camera and time to enjoy it. Take in all the corners and richness of colors that make a place like this so special. Wander around the Roozengaarde and fields to behold the beauty and free yourself from the stresses of a modern day life. Once you’ve been fully energized, head back to reality or La Conner, a little waterfront germ, for lunch.
